Kitty Hawk and the Mystery of the Masterpieces is the eagerly anticipated fifth instalment of the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency book series. This series features the intrepid teenage seaplane pilot and amateur detective Kitty Hawk as she continues in the footsteps of Nancy Drew and Amelia Earhart on her epic flight around the world. 

After meeting up with an old friend in the eternal city of Rome, Kitty Hawk unexpectedly stumbles (almost literally) into a bizarre mystery involving creepy disembodied voices, secret hidden rooms, unbreakable mathematical codes, ominous chain-smoking strangers and an array of plundered artworks by such famous masters as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Vincent van Gogh - all of it wrapped up and entwined in an enigmatic riddle hanging in plain sight right in front of everyone's noses. 

With the help of friends both old and new, Kitty Hawk follows a trail of cryptic clues that leads her on a breathless tour across a quintessentially European landscape - from ancient Roman Italy to the darkest corners of Germany, Austria and beyond. 

As with the previous books in the series, this new installment is perfect for firing the imaginations of readers of all ages. Filled with fascinating and highly Google-able locations and history, this exhilarating adventure will have armchair explorers and amateur detectives alike anxiously following every twist and turn as they attempt to help Kitty Hawk try and solve the extraordinarily bizarre Mystery of the Masterpieces.


I remember reading this series for the first time and how I totally fell for it! This book is again another amazing adventure in Kitty's life. BUT in Rome! And she meets Charlie like CHARLIE! Yaaaas! I mean another reason why I loved this novel was Charlie! She and Charlie are solving a puzzle! Trust me there were so many mind boggling things but in the end it was worth it! The writing style was again amazing! This story was a blend of action, adventure, suspense and mystery. I couldn't stop reading because Charlie! *sighs*. I love the fact that there is always some kind of information for the readers, both young and old. 
Overall, I recommend to the readers of all the ages as this is one amazing adventurous read!
Happy Reading! <3
