Lord, Gabrielle. Conspiracy 365: January. (Usbourne Books)
Cal is having a difficult start to the new year. His father has recently passed away, and after being accosted by a crazy guy on the street who says he should hide for entire year, he and his uncle get caught in a horrible storm while out sailing on New Year's Eve. (The book is set in Australia.) Cal survives but is badly injured. Then his house is ransacked! His uncle steals a letter from him that his father left before his death! He's kidnapped! His family is attacked and he's blamed! He's on the run! And most of all, there is a mystery involving his family that needs to be solved, but which will apparently take 12 books to unravel.
I'm debating this series. It will probably be popular, and I do like the fact that it will be easy to tell which book is next. However, I'm not sure I love it $132 worth. Combine that with the fact that it isn't available (that I can tell) from any of my three vendors (Follett, Baker and Taylor or Perma-Bound), and I may pass.
