Thirteen year old Johnny is doing it tough. His twin sister has vanished, his father has shot through and his beautiful mother spends her days doped up to the eyeballs and her nights being a punching bag for a bad man. In the space of a year Johnny's life has fallen apart. The police investigation has been shelved and so Johnny decides it’s up to him to find his sister and knit his broken family back together. With the help of his only friend, Jack, Johnny cuts school to go house to house, hoping someone, somewhere has the vital clue that will lead him to his sister. Then Johnny finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses the murder of a man who with his dying breath tells Johnny he has found ‘the girl that was taken’. With the help of a couple of very unlikely sidekicks, including a kindly detective and a three hundred pound escaped convict, Johnny begins to unravel the mystery surrounding his sister's disappearance. Cracking page turner with a host of marvellous characters and a very satisfying twist at the end.
