Bestselling author Patrick Carman pushes the book to the next level with this thrilling multimedia experience.

In the 21st-century landscape of bits and bytes, everyone leaves a digital footprint-even the most advanced cyber criminals. And that's where the Trackers come in. Four tech-savvy kids armed with high-tech video cameras and esoteric coding skills, the Trackers can find almost anyone, anywhere.

Told through a collage of videos, text, and websites, Trackers #2 follows Adam, Finn, Lewis, and Emily as they move closer to Shantorian, the world's most dangerous hacker. Or at least, that's who they think they're tracking. As the four move deeper into the path they've found online, they need to find out if they're the ones tracking down a hacker, or being hunted themselves.

Patrick Carman is the author of the Land of Elyon books, which spent over half a year on the New York Times bestsellers list; the fifth book in the bestselling multimedia series The 39 Clues; and the Skeleton Creek series. He lives in Walla Walla, Washington. Visit him at

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Techno Spy Thriller Reason for Reading: next in the series. Book One left us with four tech savvy teens being imprisoned and interrogated about a major computer hacker's crime. None of the teens were talking, as planned, leaving the talking up to Adam Henderson, their leader. Book Two continues on with that interrogation bringing in the name of the world's most infamous computer hacker, Shantorian. Whom no one has ever seen or knows anything about except that he always leaves his "weird eyed kid" signature behind him 0_o . I'll reveal nothing else about the plot as all questions will be answered and many surprises are in store for everyone involved. Shantorian is unique for a second book in a series as it wraps up a storyline started in book one leaving only the barest thread to continue on into the next book. I had assumed this was going to be a trilogy (aren't they all?) but I'm more inclined to think this will be a multi book series or at possibly an ongoing series in the same vein as an adult crime series. Time will tell as I can't find a release date for book 3 as of this time. I really enjoy the reading/video experience very much. Carman has come up with something totally unique. The videos are short, which I think is important or they would take away from the book. But they are just enough of a visual experience to really get you excited about the characters, the case, and the crime itself. Very well done, and I look forward to the book 3.
