The star-rating should be 4/5, not 5/5

I said it in my reviews for the previous Gilda Joyce books, and I'll say it again. This series is easily the most well-written, captivating, and all around entertaining series of "children's books" since Harry Potter. I turned the last page of the latest Gilda book, "The Dead Drop," less than five minutes ago, and I am already eagerly awaiting the next installment. Hopefully, we don't have to wait another two years for it, but when it does roll around, you better believe I'll be reading it.

So I love the series as a whole. This book on its own was also very good, but it lacked a few of the key things that elevated the first three books to a higher level. Gilda's snarky charm is still there, though I was a bit let down to see that she is a bit less disarming here than she was previously. The real change, though, is in the overall telling of the story. There is a lot more emphasis on the mystery and less on Gilda's emotional journey. In all the prior books, the Gilda's feelings (and those of the major supporting characters) were woven into the mystery, taking the reader on an emotional ride even as the mystery unfolds and things get scary. That was oddly absent in this book.

Another great Gilda Joyce book set at The International Spy Museum!!
In Jennifer Allison's 4th book you can tell Gilda's older with more responsibilities and her skills are sharper. In the Dead Drop, Gilda is a bit more serious than she has been in the last three books. There's less stuff going on with Gilda personally too. Probably having to do with the fact that she's away from home with no friends her age in Washington DC doing an internship at the spy musuem. There were still some interesting developments having to do with family and friends though...Wendy and Gilda's brother (hint hint). Although not as many as in the last three books, there were occasions were i had to burst out laughing (and got weird looks from the other people in the book store).See,this mystery is more focused on what's happening in the plot, not so much what gilda's thinking and feeling. Don't get me wrong though it's a great book and i practically devoured it!
Gilda gets to be very independent in this book.
Having a job, living in the city with an older roommate, being a Spy Camp counseler (i learned a lot about spying myself)...I would definatly recommend this book and hope Jennifer Allison comes out with her next book VERY soon!

Ps. Isn't the cover art awesome?

I am a big fan of Jennifer Allison's books. I have read almost all of the Gilda Joyce books. But I think that THE DEAD DROP is the best. THE DEAD DROP is a really good book for kids who love spies, a good mystery, and the paranormal. THE DEAD DROP is a good book for history on the Cold War. It has a twist to it that reminded me of Alfred Hichcock's movie REAR WINDOW. THE DEAD DROP is a good book for kids of both genders. This book has kept me up 'till twelve o'clock at night because it kept me hanging on every letter. Gilda's cooking experiences with her new roommate are absolutely hilarious. I think that THE DEAD DROP is one of Jennifer Allison's best piece of work EVER.

I LOVED Gilda in the first 3 books and this book was enjoyable, but Gilda has lost her wacky personality. I hope Jennifer Allison puts that personality back in the 5th Gilda book. I LOVED Gilda in the first 3 books, but her personality was just sort of bland in this book.

This was a good book but not my favorite. It was a little boring during some parts so I feel there should have been some more mystery and action in it. If you like mystery/action books with not a lot mystery and action this book would be good for you.
