And how can they all be such super-athletes? Luckily, Henry meets Christian and Fox who are outsiders too. Teaming up with them and with the sports coach who has also worked out that something is not quite right, Henry sets out to discover exactly what is going on at the sinister Malcorp Research and Development Corporation. It’s a dangerous mission and Henry has to be super-quick to stay ahead of the sinister Mr Mallory and his henchmen.
