The brilliant and beloved gang from the New York Times bestselling series is back! Since The Mysterious Benedict Society debuted twelve years ago, the series has become a modern classic, drawing comparisons to J.K. Rowling and Roald Dahl and selling over three million copies. Some time has passed since the inimitable quartet of Reynie, Sticky, Kate, and Constance have had a mission together. But with the arrival of a new Society member -- and a new threat -- they must reunite to face dilemmas more dangerous than ever before, including the villainous Mr. Curtain and a telepathic enemy tracking their every move, not to mention a dramatically preteen Constance. In its triumphant return, the Society encounters all new challenges, but the series' trademark sly humor, sweet camaraderie, hairsbreadth escapes, and mind-bending puzzles are all as engaging as ever. Fans of the series will be thrilled to see the Society has grown up a little with them, while a new generation of readers will fall in love with these irresistible adventures.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Mysterious Benedict Society is back! The cast has aged, but the criminal contingency, amped-up action, and derring-do remain the same…All of the bad guys from previous books have returned with revenge on their minds and nefarious plans in their pockets, along with all sorts of instruments of evil. Also in attendance is the ever-contrary Constance Contraire…A welcome return full of the right stuff.” Booklist (starred review)
“Chases, narrow squeaks, hastily revised stratagems, and heroic exploits that culminate in a characteristically byzantine whirl of climactic twists, triumphs, and revelations… Clever as ever.” Kirkus Reviews
“When a beloved book series must change narrators, it can sometimes be disconcerting, but Eric Pollins admirably takes the reigns from the late Del Roy, who narrated the first four books in this series. In book five, the members of the Mysterious Benedict Society are older; Reynie, Kate, and Sticky are on the verge of adulthood when they and Constance reunite for a new adventure. A five-year-old telepath named Tai, voiced with raspy, wide-eyed innocence, joins them to round up Ledroptha Curtain’s ten dangerous henchmen who have escaped from prison. Pollins imbues Mr. Benedict with gruff warmth, and Curtain’s voice drips with arrogance. This cozy mystery full of puzzles and wordplay begs for the whole family to settle in and listen together.” AudioFile
