(Called Firmament in America)
‘Good hands, Luke. Special hands. Strong and sensitive. You can do anything you want with hands like these. So don’t ever put them to bad use.’
Dad was right. Luke does have good hands. Good for playing the piano, like Dad himself used to do, and good for climbing trees – to find some peace and get away from all the troubles at home.
Now Skin and the gang want him to do some climbing, too. They want him to break into Mrs Little’s house and steal the jewellery box. They want him to prove that he’s got what it takes. That he’s part of the gang.
But Luke is seeking more than just a jewellery box. He’s seeking answers to a mystery that has been growing deeper and more disturbing by the day. A mystery that is threatening to overwhelm him.
What he finds is something so unexpected it will change his life forever.
