summary from inside cover of The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma (MT Books, 1st edition October 2009)
The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma is written by Trenton Lee Stewart. I like this book as much as the first one. In this book, the children are being kept at Mr. Benedict's house to protect them from Mr. Curtain, they can't leave. The government keeps trying to get the Whisperer from Mr. Benedict but he is doing everything he can to keep them from getting it because he knows they will use it to invade peoples minds. They have people guarding the house, but one of them is a spy for Mr. Curtain and he helps Mr. Curtain steal the Whisperer and capture the children again. I really like the ending and if you have read the other two books, I would say it is definitely worth it to finish the series. Rating: 5 stars
