Description of this Electronic Book

For high-school student Emilio Garcia Lopez, it's an ordinary school day. But that evening the knock on the door announcing the arrival of his police-officer cousin Juanita, flanked by a tall man in the uniform of the Federal Police, will turn his ordinary day into the beginning of a long nightmare. Emilio's mother has been kidnapped in broad daylight from a hotel carpark by unidentified criminals, who appear to know a great deal about her business and who have mistaken her for a wealthy businesswoman. An action-packed story set in a contemporary conflict zone.

Author's Bio

Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, of French parents, Sophie Masson came to Australia at the age of five. All her childhood, the family moved back and forth between Australia and France, so Sophie grew up between worlds, and between languages. She has published more than 50 novels in Australia and internationally, mostly for young adults and children, but also for adults, including the internationally- selling Forest of Dreams. Her books have been shortlisted for many awards; The Hunt for Ned Kelly won a New South Wales Premier's Award, and The Hand of Glory an Aurealis. Sophie is married with three grown-up children. She lives in country New South Wales with her husband David Leach. Series editor Lyn White has been a primary-school teacher-librarian and EAL (English as an Additional Language) teacher for more than twenty years, and recently completed postgraduate studies in Editing and Communications at the University of Melbourne. She is passionate about children's literature, committed to developing life-long reading habits in children and has great expertise in engaging students with quality texts and teachers with quality resources. Lyn does some teaching at Blackburn English Language School and is a pre-service supervisor with Deakin University.
