Superspy middle schooler Ben Ripley faces the Croatoan—a new evil organization that’s so mysterious, the only proof it exists is from the American Revolution—in this latest addition to the New York Times bestselling Spy School series.

With SPYDER defeated, Ben Ripley is looking forward to his life getting back to normal, or as normal as possible when you’re a superspy in training. For once, everything seems to be right in Ben’s world...until someone bombs the CIA conference room next door.

To Ben’s astonishment, the attacker is none other than Erica Hale, the spy-in-training he respects more than any other. Ben refuses to believe Erica is working for the enemy...even if the rest of the CIA does.

His mission: prove Erica is not a double agent working against the US, locate the fabled colonial-era insurgent group that’s blackmailing her, figure out what their devious plot is, and thwart it.

But this time, Ben finds himself up against opponents he has never encountered before: his own friends. They’re not as ready to trust in Erica as he is, and Ben is forced to rely on his own wits and skills more than ever before. How can he succeed when he doesn’t even know who he can trust?

    Benjamin Ripley is just a regular person. He fight crime, defeats SPYDER (A notorious evil organization), and attends a secret spy school for talented kids. In this book his best friend, Erica Hale, one of the best spys in training in his spy school, is being threatened by the Spanish organization, the Croatoan. They have threatened Erica to kill Ben, or they would kill Ericas' sister, Trixie. Erica fears for her sisters life, but doesn't kill Ben. Instead, she works together with Ben to defeat the Croatoan organization. The book follows the two as they run around DC, looking for clues. I won't spoil the ending, but I will say that this book is well written and amazing. I highly recommend it for all readers. For those who have read the book, I hope that Ben gets back together with Zoe, not Erica. Have a blessed day!
