One False Note

"The 39 Clues" is a series of fantasy adventure books, the first of which, "The Maze of Bones", written by Percy Jackson and the Olympians author Rick Riordan, deals with the death of fictional character Grace Cahill. The grandmother of main characters Amy and Dan, Grace dies and leaves with them a will that invites them to search the globe for thirty-nine clues. Upon completing the offer, the winners are said to become the "richest, most important people in history." Riordan will also cover the main story arc, although a team of authors has been signed, each author to write one or more of the following books in the series. The series is unique in that it will allow readers to compete online and through a trading card game for prizes. Along with writing the first book, Riordan will continue to oversee the progressive story arc.

Interactivity

The ten novels in the 39 Clues series will each contain real-life clues for readers to decipher. According to Rick Riordan's official page [http://www.rickriordan.com/index.php/books-for-children/the-39-clues/] , both an online and trading card game will be launched alongside the book, in which players will be able to win prizes.

The Maze of Bones

The Maze of Bones is the first book in the series. It was published on October 9th, 2008.
