Wow, what a great read. This has it all. Some of the books shy away from the "solving clues" and don't add depth to characters, but in Storm Warning, Park does both, Amy and Dan solve clues, and one we get a lot of depth in the characters. It was a nice and refreshing touch.
The trio (Nellie, Dan and Amy) head to to the Caribbean to follow up on clues. It has the usual danger that's surrounds the clues, but there's also danger from the other racers. As if that's not enough, Amy and Dan has to deal with the consequences of something they do, and the fallout it leads to. They do learn a lot about their past and what happened to their parents. All of this weighs down on them as they have to solve the puzzles. With all of this going on, they have to deal with someone they only know as "The Man in Black."

Park does an amazing job and has a wonderful style of description that really brings the Caribbean alive

When Grace Cahill passed away, relatives oozed out of the woodwork in hopes of getting their hands on her fortunes. But Grace wasn't your typical old lady, and she didn't leave this world in typical fashion either.

Fourteen-year-old Amy and her 11-year-old brother, Dan, make up one of the teams. Orphaned and unwanted by everyone except their beloved (and now deceased) grandmother, the siblings don't have anything to lose and have decided to go for it. But unlike their opponents, they have no money, connections, or special training, not to mention the fact that they're just kids. This team has the odds seriously stacked against them. But they do have a very... read more

The 39 Clues just marches another step forward into classic status. The adventure now takes us into the Caribbean as the scene is set for the climax in Book 10. The mysterious 'Man in Black' is revealed and I can reveal...that it's not Johnny Cash!
Definately recommended, I'd also recommend the brilliant 'Godstone' and also 'Mariah Mundi':
