The Black Circle by Patrick Carman

"Nicely done, dweeb. Now we're stuck at the airport with no money. Nellie's going to love us when we wake her up and she discovers we've stolen her phone, spent most of our cash, and need a ride from the airport. And we don't even have any doughnuts yet! Could it get any worse?"
"I think it just did," said Dan.
Amy's heart sank as a black stretch limo pulled up to the curb behind them, and a door opened. Ian and Natalie Kabra, a Clue-hunting team infinitely more dangerous than the Holts, had arrived on the scene. (8-9)

Amy and Dan are on their own after a mysterious note and picture of their parents sends them to Russia without Nellie or their cat Saladin. The mysterious NRR seems to be helping them, providing them with passports, money, and guidance. But is NRR really an ally. Or is this another elaborate plot to send the brother and sister off track? And are Amy and Dan really forming another alliance with yet another clues team? Read The Black Circle, Patrick Carman's contribution to the 39 Clues series, to find out.
