About the book

Archie Blake thought his policeman father teaching him how to pick locks and open safes was just a bit of fun. When a diamond necklace is stolen and his dad is arrested, Archie realises the only way to prove his dad’s innocence is to go on the run and use everything he's learnt to uncover the truth. However, Archie soon finds himself deeply tangled in the criminal underworld, where it's hard to know who to trust and even harder to see what's right or wrong. Will Archie be able to find a way out before it's too late?
