The Philadelphia Adventure

Our rating: ***

The Centennial Exposition is coming to Vesper Holly’s hometown, Philadelphia! Vesper is excited, but even more so when President Grant appears at her house to ask her help. The Brazilian Emperor’s children have been kidnapped, and Dom Pedro, the emperor, has received a ransom note from none other than Dr. Desmond Helvitius! The note demands that Vesper deliver the ransom in person, but Vesper has other plans…

You may be disappointed that Vesper doesn’t get to travel to some foreign country, but don’t overlook this book because of that! Despite the fact that nothing blows up (something does in all the others), The Philadelphia Adventure is well worth reading.
