And then he saw the soldiers. Soldiers in red uniforms, and in black uniforms too. Suddenly they were everywhere, closing in on the crowd. They were rushing at people, pushing at them roughly, trying to drive them back. Two worlds-the real world and the world across the Barrier-are in terrible danger. Only Patrick can save them from destruction. The excitement of Finders Keepers continues as Patrick makes his desperate bid to win a race against time.
