Synopsis

Thief! by John Pilkington

This title is the fourth in the series of rip-roaring historical mysteries set in the cut-throat world of Elizabethan England. Boy-actor Ben Button is looking forward to leaving the chaos of London for a quiet visit to his family in rural Hornsey. But all is not right at home; the village has suffered a series of vicious robberies and Ben's granny is acting strangely...like she's hiding something. But it isn't until Ben learns that Daniel Cutter - Hornsey's most feared thief - has been released from prison, that he discovers his grandmother is hiding someone...Cutter himself. When his granny's house is ransacked by a ruthless stranger searching for Cutter, Ben is drawn into a manhunt for a merciless criminal who will stop at nothing until he finds a mysterious treasure concealed somewhere in the village - a treasure to which only Cutter knows the whereabouts. Readers will be gripped by this thrilling mystery, riddled with cunning clues and hidden secrets, set in the colourful and exhilarating world of Tudor England.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
