Description

11.32am. Ted and his sister Kat watch their cousin Salim get on board the London Eye. The pod rises from the ground, high above the city.

12.02am. The pod lands and the doors open. Everyone exits – everyone but Salim.

Has he spontaneously combusted? (Ted’s theory.)
Has he been kidnapped? (Aunt Gloria’s theory.)
Is he even still alive? (The family’s unspoken fear.)

Even the police are baffled – so it’s up to Ted, whose brain runs on its own unique operating system, to solve this mystery and find Salim.

Teaming up with Kat, Ted follows a trail of clues across London – while time ticks dangerously by…

Now featuring a new introduction from Robin Stevens, author of the bestselling Murder Most Unladylike novels.

Publisher Review

A thoroughly gripping detective story * Sunday Telegraph * Compulsive reading * Independent * Grips the reader from the opening chapter * Sunday Times * Dowd transforms disability into a gift * The Times * A wonderfully written mystery. It is funny, nerve-wracking and tender by turns, with plenty of pace and excitement as well as some moments for serious reflection * School Librarian * Everything about this book - the perky tone, the subtlety of characterisation and the cleverness of the plotting - is absolutely right * Irish Times *
