Aunt Beatrice’s Detective–The Man In Black?

If you read hear a lot, then you probably know that a lot of my blog posts are things that I’d filed away and was aware of but hadn’t really shared with anyone. With an introduction like that, of course this post is one of those. The subject of this 39 Clues post is who is Aunt Beatrice’s detective?

Remember when in the books, they casually slip away that Aunt Beatrice has hired a detective to find them? Well, I had always thought that it was the Man In Black, otherwise known as Fiske Cahill. I will not get into it here, but a page about why this is so is under construction at the moment. Fiske was the sister of Grace and Beatrice, and he mysteriously disappeared in the 1960’s. He is the Man In Black.

Since the Man In Black is a Madrigal, he would obviously make the perfect detective, especially since he is very closely related to Beatrice. However, I think that she hired a detective of a different purpose; to reach a goal. The goal is not to find Amy and Dan, but we all know from e-mails in our 39 Clues inbox and cards that the Madrigals need the Cahill siblings to follow a certain path. Beatrice might have actually wanted Amy and Dan to go for the hunt, and that is why she provoked them into doing it, although on the outside it looked like she was persuading them not to.

This may or may not be true, but I think that the evidence certainly increases in the following quote for book eight by Gordon Korman (believed to have the title of The Sacred Found, although there is no proof):

“As the race to find the 39 Clues builds to its explosive finish, Amy and Dan must steal a Clue guarded by thousands of the world’s best soldiers. With their enemies closing in, the siblings are separated. Together, they almost have a chance, but alone…Could the search for this Clue spell the end of Amy and Dan? And while they are separated, could their Aunt Beatrice’s detective find them?”

This sounds very flimsy, and there is no grounds that this excerpt is true, although there is a similar one from Amazon, just without the part about the detective. It’s just a guess, although it sounds like it could be likely, or at least something similar.

The Man In Black has had multiple chances to capture them, but it’s obvious that the Madrigals are waiting, from evidence that again, I’ll get into in other places.

There is not sufficient evidence, although it seems the most likely since there really are no other candidates. So, what do you think?
