Amy and Dan Cahill and their au pair, Nellie, have found the clue they need and they're off for Japan. Except at the airport, Dan and Amy are held back after Nellie passes boarding and their tickets are stolen by the Kabras. The children have no choice when Alistair Oh shows up and offers to fly them to the next stop. So, once again they have to trust someone who is also out to get the clues and the prize. From official release/information:
Product Description: ATTENTION! Amy and Dan Cahill have been located once again, this time in the company of the notoriously unreliable Alistair Oh. Could they have been foolish enough to make an alliance?
Spies report that Amy and Dan seem to be tracking the life of one of the most powerful fighters the world has ever known. If this fearsome warrior was a Cahill, his secrets are sure to be well-guarded . . . and the price to uncover them just might be lethal.
