About "The 39 Clues: Cahill Files: Silent Night":

The year is 1914 and war is raging in Europe. Eager to win the glory for the Lucian Branch, 16-year-old Rupert Davenport ( Ian Kabra's ancestor) sneaks off to France to join the fighting. But the reality of battle is unlike anything Rupert imagined. Even if he survives the bullets and explosions, he'll have to face an even deadlier threat: the Vespers—the Cahill family's rivals who are plotting a dangerous scheme behind enemy lines. Yet just when Rupert's about to lose hope, Christmas Eve arrives and Rupert witnesses something that changes everything he thought he knew about war…and his own family. Is it a holiday miracle? Or a twisted game designed to destroy the Cahills?

The 39 Clues ® , the groundbreaking multi-platform adventure series written by a dream team of authors, was the first series of its kind in the publishing industry. The series launched on September 9, 2008, with Book 1: The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan, which debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. All books in the series have appeared on the New York Times , USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. The 39 Clues: Cahills vs. Vespers, a six-book spin-off of the popular series, launched on August 30, 2011, with Book 1: The Medusa Plot by #1 New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman. The concluding book in The 39 Clues Cahills vs. Vespers series will be released in March 2013 and will be written by international bestselling author David Baldacci.
