Their private mansion, with its private park, its private school-room and private security system, is supposed to keep them safe, but Adam and Daisy’s privileged world is torn apart when black-clad, masked men brandishing snub-nosed guns break in. With friend Leo and teacher, Miss Archer, they are bundled into a van – and, when Miss Archer is – apparently - shot, it’s clear the gunmen mean business. Adam begins to wonder about Leo: the family odd-job man’s son, he shares their life - but is he involved with the kidnappers..? Suddenly, no-one seems quite who they appear...
With its non-stop action, deftly drawn characters and final twist – all narrated using simple vocabulary - this story has tension enough to involve the most reluctant struggling reader.
