Mysterious Benedict Society and the Riddle of Ages (book 4)
The New York Times bestselling series returns for a triumphant fourth adventure!
After starring in three adventures, the inimitable quartet of Reynie, Sticky, Kate, and Constance haven’t had a mission together in some time. 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 return of the villainous Mr Curtain and his Ten Men and a formidable enemy with a mystifying ability to track their every move.
When Reuben discovers an old pocket watch, he soon realizes it holds an incredible power: it can turn you invisible for fifteen minutes. He can’t resist the lure of disappearance: for a time, he can vanish from the despotic regime of New Umbra. But the watch’s power is even more extraordinary than he imagines. Soon, he’s on the run from New Umbra’s ruler, The Smoke, who’s determined to possess it for himself …
A dazzling new story from Trenton Lee Stewart, author of the internationally bestselling Mysterious Benedict Society series.
