Synopsis

The Perfect Enemy by F. E. Higgins

When Ralph Bennett's life seems it can get no worse, in walks a man with a box that clearly is worth its weigh in gold. Ralph can't help but steal it, desperate for money and any way out of his life as a servant. He ignores the box's warning and opens it, unwittingly releasing his Doppelganger - his perfect double. Evil double, that is. The Doppelganger unleashes havoc throughout the city, and soon Ralph finds himself accused of murder. With the Doppelganger and the police always close behind, Ralph and his friend Myrtle desperately try to find a way to defeat the supernatural embodiment of evil and while staying out of the gallows. When they finally confront the Doppelganger in the ultimate showdown, only one can emerge victorious. But which Ralph will survive? The Perfect Enemy is part of the HEROES series - created with series editor Frank Cottrell Boyce and specifically written to engage and captivate less confident readers. An epic adventure packed full of action and cliff-hangers that boys and girls will not be able to put down. A great solution for reluctant readers and encouraging reading for pleasure. This is the definition of a page turner, a relentlessly paced story with no pauses to take in the scenery, that manages to keep an element of suspense all the way through. It is very exciting.
