The Lovereading4Kids comment

A gripping, fast-paced gothic mystery that will have readers aged about 10+ gasping for air but utterly spellbound to the words on the page. Mariah Mundi is an orphan but he’s also a magician’s assistant. Lurking amongst the magician’s equipment lurk dark and dangerous secrets; secrets in fact that draw Mariah into the path of villainy, plots and possible death.

Synopsis

Mariah Mundi: The Midas Box by G P Taylor

Fresh out of school, young Mariah faces a new chapter of his life, living in the Prince Regent hotel built into the face of a cliff. His job is to assist the magician in the stage shows held for the guests. Above ground, the guests are offered every form of luxury.
