About the book
Joe's mum is dead. Killed alongside a stranger, in a hit-and-run car crash. Her last words, a message for someone Joe doesn't know.
Angry and alone, he takes his dog for a late-night walk, where he finds himself at the gates of a mansion belonging to an old movie star.
It's here that Joe begins to uncover the truth of what happened that night ...
A gripping crime mystery for young teens.
“An excellent page-turning adventure for all those who, like Joe, the hero of the story, are passionate about uncovering the truth ... Joe’s questing courage is fun to follow.'”
