The Blackthorn Key
The Blackthorn Key takes place in London, England. The book is set in the older days where there were Masters and Apprentices. One of the masters, Master Benedict, had an apprentice named Christopher. Most of the book explains how there are certain messages written in code, backwards, or even in Latin. Towards the middle of the book Master Benedict disappeared and Christopher set out to find the clues Master Benedict left. Throughout the story Chris and his best friend Tom get into a lot of trouble to the point where they almost ended up dead.
