Perfect for tween readers who enjoy mysteries and puzzles and books like Chasing Vermeer, this page-turning debut novel is filled with adventure, intrigue, and heart. After their father, a video-game inventor, strikes it rich, the Smithfork kids find they hate their new life. They move from their cozy Brooklyn neighborhood to a swanky apartment on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue. They have no friends, a nanny who takes the place of their parents, and a school year looming ahead that promises to be miserable. And then, one day, Brid, CJ, and Patrick discover an astonishing secret about their apartment: The original owner, the deceased multimillionaire Mr. Post, long ago turned the apartment itself into a giant puzzle containing a mysterious book and hidden panels-a puzzle that, with some luck, courage, and brainpower, will lead to discovering the Post family fortune. Unraveling the mystery causes them to race through today's New York City-and to uncover some long-hidden secrets of the past.

An outstanding book that leaves the reader wanting more. Absolutely cannot wait for the author's next book. Walls Within Walls was about this rich guy who loved solving codes and puzzles with his kids. Before he died, he left coded clues for his kids to find and solve that would lead them to their inheritance. They never did figure out the clues because they forgot to do one very important chore their father had given them. When another family moved into their living space many years later, the clues began to unfold for them. The dyslexic child proved to be the most helpful of all because he could often figure out the coded clues because he looked at things differently. Very inspirational!
