Dangerous Secrets!

£ 5.99

Take a break-neck ride through China old and new!

Sam Jasper is not a “scream-and-wet-pants” kind of girl...


It began with a set of strange clues hidden in an Art Deco powder compact. Clues left by Sam Jasper’s great-grandfather, John Jasper, who was an archaeologist in China just before the last war.

Having just lost her mother and feeling unwanted by her father, 12-year-old Sam decides to follow the clues in the hope that they will lead to John’s journal and then to treasure.

But once in China, following the clues with the help of a local boy, Kai, Sam begins to realise that someone else is also searching for the journal, and he will stop at nothing to find it first.

For there is a lot more at stake than treasure, and Sam is in great danger as she uncovers crimes that go back to 1937 when Japan started bombing Shanghai in the run-up to the Second World War.

Sam’s story is accompanied by John Jasper’s journal entries as he documents the last hurrah of Shanghai’s fabulous International Settlement before life changes forever on the day of the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941.

And both Sam and John must face treachery and peril as their quests connect across the years.

Travel with Sam across China to exotic places including the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Great Wall as she tries to unravel the clues to the diary and find out why it’s so important that someone would kill for it!
