They meet Boone, a retired CIA agent, and their lives will never be the same again. They meet other people working for the Secret Service and they are trying to find out why they want Angela. In Book One: Independence Hall, we met Q and his stepsister, Angela. We also met their pop star parents, Blaze and Roger; the SOS team protecting the family; and we met the main players of the Mossad team that is following them. They include Eben, who wants to avenge his brother; Carma and Devorah, who work for Eben; and Ziv, who started out working for Eben but was actually working for Malak, Angela's supposedly dead mother, or Anmar, Malak's twin sister. We also learn that Angela's mother, Malak Tucker, is still alive and it was her twin sister Anmar, a terrorist known as "the Leopard", that died in the explosion at Independence Hall, posing as her dead sister.

4 The Alamo[4] Roland Smith and Michael P. Spradlin July 1, 2013 ISBN 978-1585368211
Continuing the fast-paced adventure series, Q and Angela now know each other's strengths and weakness so they can foil the spies and kidnappers who continue to pursue them while they travel with their parents on a rock concert tour across the U.S. The step brother and sister now have the help of the U. S. President, J. R. Culpepper, and his son, Willingham Culpepper, or P.K. (President's Kid) for short. The president has given them special watches with his secret number engraved on them in case of an emergency. Q and Angela hope they will not have to use that number, but in this book they may have to. Meanwhile, P.K. researches in the White House archives for clues about the mysterious Boone, who is the head security guard and roadie on the tour but also supervises a secretive group of former spies who have the technology, intelligence, persistence, and muscle-power to continue to thwart the mysterious Ghost Cell. The adventures continue as the spies take Angela's mother (disguised as The Leopard, a sinister spy) to San Antonio to the ranch of one of the top five spies in the mysterious Ghost Cell. The rock concert continues to San Antonio as well where the parents, in the chart topping rock group Match, are going to hold a free concert in front of the legendary Alamo historic site.

Description from Amazon:

Fresh off a "too close" encounter with the terrorist group, the Ghost Cell, in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Q and Angela head to San Antonio, Texas. As their parents' band, Match, prepares for a concert at the Alamo, the two discover that the Ghost Cell has its tentacles everywhere, including the Lone Star State. With each passing hour, Q and Angela uncover more clues and discover more leads. And the mysterious Boone and his SOS group leave them with more questions than answers, for there is much more to Boone than meets the eye. With time running out to stop another Ghost Cell attack, Angela and Q and the others begin to wonder. Are they following the Ghost Cell or is the Ghost Cell following them?
