In the beginning of the book, Amy and Dan are now at the end of their clue hunt, and every misfortune they've had. Their lead is a poem found in their hotel room. However, it is then stolen by Isabel Kabra.[2] It is revealed that William Shakespeare was a powerful Madrigal and the most important clue is on the line against their competitors. Dan and Amy are supposed to go to the Globe theater to watch a Shakespeare play, Romeo and Julliet. While watching the show they see what looks to be ninjas. The ninjas find a clue at the top of the theater but drop it into the hands of Dan and Amy. As it turns out the whole Cahill family is at the play looking for the clue. Backstage of the play the fight over the paper found at the theater. Mr. McIntyre and Fiske Cahill reveal there is another family out there that makes Isabel Kabra look like Mother Teresa. The globe on the 39 Clues symbol is, unlike in the first nine books, shattered into pieces.

The message on the cards is, "Only together can we fight the true enemy."

The secret message in the book is "The Cahills aren't the only ones looking for the Clues. The Vespers are coming."
