When an inmate is found unresponsive in his high security cell at Belmarsh prison, he’s rushed to hospital for treatment. The prisoner is human trafficker and international fixer Tristan Huxley, a man a lot of people have good reason to want dead. But Huxley mysteriously never makes it to the hospital. He may have plenty of enemies but it seems he has some very powerful friends too.
The third in a series of gripping adventure stories, perfect for fans of Enid Blyton.
Max is distraught when he receives a letter from the school telling him he has to go on a weekend of cycling and camping for the Duke of Wellington awards scheme. But things vastly improve when his friends agree to come with him.
It isn’t long before they find adventure – or adventure finds them… They make a friend called Byron and set up camp in a forest near to his home. But that night they wake to see strange lights and a fierce wind blowing through the trees. Moments later Byron arrives, running and screaming that ‘they’ are after him. When the gang follow him, they find his rucksack but no sign of the boy. It looks like Byron has been abducted by a UFO! But surely that’s not possible… is it?
The friends can’t believe their luck when they get the chance to stay in a castle for their Easter holidays.
The castle is everything they had hoped for, with a moat and an ancient burial mound that gives it an air of mystery. But things are not what they seem and a treacherous discovery in the grounds reveals a 300-year-old treasure map.
The race is on. The After-School Detective Club is in pursuit of Ragnar’s gold – a hoard of treasure said to have been buried by a Viking warrior and guarded by his demon hound… that is, unless someone else gets there first.
They may seem an unlikely gang of friends, but when they spot a ghostly figure walking the beach one winter’s evening, they are thrown together to unravel a mystery that none of them expected.
The deeper they dig, the bigger the adventure becomes – motorboats, tracking devices, bedroom breakouts and daring sea rescues are all in a day’s work for the After-School Detective Club. And when their investigation leads them into trouble with the police.
John Milton is an artisan. A master of killing. He’s the man the British government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst: the enemies of the state that MI5 and even the military can’t stop. But years of state-sanctioned murder have taken their toll. Milton is troubled by nightmares, a long line of ghosts who torment his dreams. He resolves to make his next job his last and, then, perhaps, he can start to make amends for everything that he has done.
Milton finds himself in the East End of London. A young mother needs his help to rescue her son from a life on the street. But the gang who has taken the boy in, and the charismatic rapper who leads it, is not about to cooperate with him. As London burns through summer riots, Milton finds himself in unfamiliar territory, dealing with an unfamiliar foe.
And when his employer sends another agent after him, the odds against him are stacked even higher.
