Deception. Theft. Murder. All you need is confidence.
Anna McDonald's terrible family vacation begins like many others: the weather is bad, the rental is shabby, her daughters are bored, and her ex-husband and his new partner insufferable. Luckily, Fin Cohen and his wife have agreed to come along, too, so when news breaks of a local kidnapping, the two amateur podcasters have just the excuse they need to jump ship.
It seems that Lisa Lee, a young YouTube star, has vanished from her home. In Lisa's very last video, she had ventured into an abandoned chateau in France and inadvertently revealed a treasure unlike any other, hidden behind a revolving bookshelf. Watching the video, Anna knows she must find out what happened to this young woman before it's too late. And to do so, she'll need to track down that treasure, a mysterious item that might hold answers to the greatest questions ever asked.
But with hundreds of others also watching, Anna and Fin soon find themselves mixed up with some very dark characters and on another thrilling chase across Europe-and another race to save their own lives.
