When a small-time crook suddenly has big money on his hands, it's only natural that the police want to know where it came from.
James' latest CHERUB mission looks routine: make friends with the bad guy's children, infiltrate his home and dig up some leads for the cops to investigate.
But the plot James begins to unravel isn't what anyone expected. And it seems like the only person who might know the truth is a reclusive eighteen-year-old boy.
There's just one problem. The boy fell from a rooftop and died more than a year earlier.
