A cracking pace is set from the very first moment in this thrilling adventure. Hanna, Ned and Jik are present in the courtroom in Sangabera in East Borneo when Dad is sentenced to death for a murder they know he didn’t commit. They know they must do all they can to prove his innocence even though it means embarking on a deadly dangerous trip into the heart of the jungle. Already familiar from Shark Island and Sea Wolf, these children are fearless and their adventures in exotic locations are captivating.
