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.

Leopard's Claw by David Miller

BETRAYED. ATTACKED. LOST. Life has returned to normal for Hanna, Ned and Jik after their adventures in the tempestuous Sulu Sea. But then Dad heads to Borneo to look for gold and everything goes horribly wrong. Dad is accused of murder, and Hanna, Ned and Jik know they must go into the jungle to prove his innocence. It is a race against time but the tropical forest is filled with predators - both animal and human. And what deadly secret waits in the heart of the jungle?
