As the book opens, Spectrum agent Ruby is at dive school in Hawaii, confronting one of her few fears (claustrophobia) and ignoring the sharks around her. Back home in Twinford, you can be sure both of these elements will resurface — along with pirates who are trying to kill her parents, messages sent over Muzak radio stations, a peculiarly potent sea monster, family legends featuring brave little girls and large gemstones, and the return of the evil Count von Viscount.

Secret Coders Welcome to Stately Academy, a strange school that is just crawling with mysteries to be solved! The founder of the school left many clues and puzzles to challenge his enterprising students. Hopper, a new student, and her friend, Eni, start to discover and then solve many of the school’s puzzles. Sadly, not everyone is happy about this — especially Mr. Bee, the school janitor. Using their wits and their budding computer coding skills, Hopper and Eni decide to solve the mystery of Stately Academy, no matter what it takes!
Secret Coders: Paths & Portals There’s something lurking beneath the surface of Stately Academy — literally. In a secret underground classroom, Hopper, Eni, and Josh discover that the campus was once home to the Bee School, an institute where teachers, students, and robots worked together to unravel the mysteries of coding. Hopper and her friends are eager to follow in this tradition and become top-rate coders. But why are Principal Dean and the rugby team suddenly so interested in their extracurricular activities?
