Review: Shatterproof by Roland Smith (39 Clues)

"The fourth book in the CAHILLS VS. VESPERS series, the follow up to the worldwide bestseller THE 39 CLUES.
After pulling some spectacular heists, Amy and Dan have become two of Interpol's most wanted criminals. So when Vesper One orders them to steal the world's largest diamond, they know they're facing life in prison . . . or worse. But with the Cahill hostages still in peril, Amy and Dan have no choice but to launch a mission that leads them to an ancient city full of dangerous secrets. With a Vesper mole sabotaging the Madrigals from inside, Amy and Dan have to fulfill their enemy's request before it's too late.  Vesper One has developed a taste for killing Cahills, and Amy and Dan aren't going to wait to see who's next."-Amazon
My Review
Meh; That was the first word that entered my mind after I read Shatterproof. 
Now don't get me wrong, it was a very good book, however the writing quality seemed slightly diminished and the Revelations weren't nearly as sharp as they shouldv'e been. It really seemed to take the book down a notch, Even the action sequences seemed toned down a bit.
My current assumption is that the new author had a little trouble connecting to the new series (since each book is written by a different and unique author), whatever the case it still was a pretty solid book.
Rating: B
