Look No Further For Your Passport To Danger!

Are you eager to explore and learn about foreign countries and far off places? Are you fascinated by the complicated and thrilling history behind the scenes of World War II? Let The Secret of the Mezuzah, Book 1 in the new Passport to Danger series, make your pulse race as you get swept away in a tale of intrigue and peril.

The history of Europe is filled with tales of espionage and adventure that have always fascinated teens seeking adventure and mystery. Now in The Secret of the Mezuzah, repackaged and updated for a new audience, Mary Reeves Bell gives readers a passport to danger with her tale of a contemporary boy whose nose for trouble leads him and his friends to uncover a terrible secret hidden buried in the dark reaches of the past.

Constantine Rea is a bored American teen living in Austria who decides to spice up his days by finding a spy. Vienna has always been a center for international espionage and so with his friend Hannah Rosenberg, Con finds himself quickly in the middle of more danger than he expected.

While on a visit to the home of his former landlord, Herr Donner, Con is given a curious object called a mezuzah, a symbol of the Jewish faith. But when Herr Donner has a chance to rethink the gift he angrily demands its return and Con refuses. He wants to know what is so important about the object and why Herr Donner had if after all. Con's quest for answers will lead him to a shocking discovery and bring him face-to-face with the horrors of the Holocaust.

The Secret of the Mezuzah is, in the end, an important book that addresses ageless questions about the nature of justice and the call of God's people to stand for what is right in the framework of a thoroughly modern tale.
