Review: Once again, Callum Ormond is in death’s door. In March, the third book in the Conspiracy 365 series written by Gabrielle Lord, Cal is still trying to uncover the Ordman Riddle. With a train bearing down upon him and the police after him, who knows what will happen next.

With the train bearing down upon him, Cal blacks out. He wakes up in a tunnel with his wound fixed by a man called Repro who happens to be a black belt. They go to his secret base and are almost found by police. He leaves and heads back to his old hideout in an abandoned house. Boges comes soon and they look over the drawings his dad made. They go to a library and find new comments on Cal’s blog. Cal arrives at an office after being called by his dad’s nurse and gang thugs show up. Cal runs and looses them, but get bit by a death adder snake. He barely gets the anti-venom and escapes. Boges come by Cal’s ‘house’ again with Winter on his tail. They talk and after Winter leaves a policeman shows up. Cal and Boges barely escape. Cal runs back to Repro’s hideout to get him to help break into the house of a person after him. They go the next day. They find a file then are found by goons. Cal jumps out of the window and Repro found his own way out. Cal hitchhikes onto a truck and he and the driver are driven off the road by the goons. Will Cal finally be caught?

March deserves 5 out of 5 stars. As usual in the series the chapters are written by days and times. The pages go 197-178-177-etc instead of 1-2-3-etc. The story is very interesting and I got tied into it easily. I like the part when Cal got bitten by a snake. To my surprise no one after Cal has shot after him. So do they just run and tackle instead of shooting? I think Cal should be shot at, but not killed. So I think readers who like action will enjoy this book and the rest of the series.
