The 39 Clues, Book 3: The Sword Thief - review of book

The Sword Thief is the third book in The 39 Clues series. It was written by Peter Lerangis and was published by Scholastic in 2009. The Sword Thief follows the first two books in the series, The Maze of Bones by Rick Riordan and One False Note by Gordon Korman.

The book is narrated by David Pittu and is 3 hrs and 51 min long.

The book starts with Dan and Amy in a Venice airport. They team up with Alistair Oh and fly with him on his private plane to Japan. Together they learn about Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the greatest warrior in the history of Japan.

They find a haiku, which tells them to use geometry to find Hideyoshi's treasure. They are chased by the Yakuza and are nearly killed. They decode another message in the shapes that tells them to go to Korea.

In Korea, they look at old books about the Cahill family in Alistair's secret library. By reading one of them, Amy and Dan figure out that the secret of the 39 Clues is the ability to make gold out of lead. They also figure out that they should go to a mountain called Pukhansan.

In the mountain, they find an entrance where all of Hideyoshi's treasure lies, and the third clue, gold. The Kabras betray them and block them inside the cave. They also figure out that the next clue is in Egypt.
