Fifteen-year-old Jake Knight is an explorer and adventurer at heart but this often gets him into trouble. When a stuffy English boarding school suspends him for rule-breaking, Jake flies out to Burkina Faso where his parents are living. He is expecting a long, adventure-filled vacation under a smiling African sun. But what awaits him there is kidnapping, terrorism and Yakuuba Sor - the most wanted outlaw in the Sahara desert.

This is one of those books that 11+ boys who love action and adventure will love…Stephen Davies certainly deserves to become more widely known than he currently is

A faintly old-fashioned tale of kidnap, complete with Robin Hood figure, double-dealing policemen and British spies running amok. Highly entertaining
