14 year old Amy Cahill, her 11 year old brother Dan Cahill, and their au-pair Nellie Gomez head to Australia to discover what their mother and father knew about the clue hunt. There they meet their friendly surfer uncle Shep Trent, who helps them by transporting them where they need to go in his plane. Amy and Dan are on the trail of a mysterious criminal known only as Bob Troppo, and they also discover a secret expedition their parents went on around the world to look for clues. But following her parents' footsteps reminds Amy of the memories she had of the night her parents died...memories so painful she can't even bear to share them with Dan.
Amy and Dan have to decide how much they're willing to risk, and what they are fighting for. Ian and Natalie Kabra's mother Isabel joins the hunt, as she could not stand the mistakes of her children. The Kabras send the Cahills an 'invitation' to a meeting at a dock in Australia. Amy cannot decide which Lucian to trust - the cloying Isabel Kabra, or the serious but deadly Irina Spasky. Irina stops following Isabel and helps Amy with the clue hunt. She turned away from Isabel because she lost her boy, Nikolai, when she was on a mission. Amy's life is threatened by Isabel but she escapes thanks to the Holt family, who help her because of their previous alliance in The Black Circle. Amy and Dan are briefly distanced from each other when Amy returned to her uncle's house and she refused to talk to Dan.
Amy and Dan continue their search to find out that Bob Troppo was actually Ekaterina agent Robert Cahill Henderson, who came devastatingly close to finding all 39 clues in his Indonesia lab. His work was destroyed by the Krakatoa eruption and he fled to Australia. Amy and Dan find a note written by him, a strange poem seemingly pointing to a clue. The Cahills discover the clue - water - with the help of Alistair Oh. However, Isabel Kabra sets the house they are staying in on fire, and Irina Spasky chooses to save Amy, Dan and Alistair at the price of her own life. The book ends with Amy and Dan thinking that they now are doing the Clue hunt for their parents.
