Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything. Soon Raphael and his friends Gardo and Rat are running for their lives. Wanted by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking, fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man's mission to put right a terrible wrong. Three street-boys against the world - can they win?

Raphael is a 14 year old dumpsite boy. He lives a precarious life, making his living sifting through rubbish with his best friend, Gardo, with the faint hope that one day he might find something interesting. And then one unlucky-lucky day, as Raphael puts it, he does. He finds a wallet, containing 11 hundred pesos and more mysteriously, a map and a key. The only trouble is, one of the most powerful men in the country wants that wallet back and Raphael, Gardo and the third member of the team, Rat, find themselves on the run, unable to trust a soul. Itís a wonderful story from the same publishers who gave us The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas so if you liked those novels, youíll love this.
