'Gripping and unpredictable, with a hero you won't forget.' - John Boyne, author of The Boy in The Striped Pyjamas

An old man tells his grandson that there is a battle raging inside him, inside all of us. A terrible battle between two wolves. One wolf is bad - pride, jealousy, greed. The other wolf is good - kindness, hope, truth. The child asks, 'Who will win?'

The grandfather answers simply, 'The one you feed.'

One afternoon, police officers show up at Ben Silver's front door. Minutes after they leave, his parents arrive home. Ben and his little sister Olive are bundled into the car and told they're going on a holiday. But are they? It doesn't take long for Ben to realise that his parents are in trouble. Ben's always dreamt of becoming a detective - his dad even calls him 'Cop'. Now Ben gathers evidence and tries to uncover what his parents have done.

The problem is, if he figures it out, what does he do? Tell someone? Or keep the secret and live life on the run?

Industry Reviews

'A high stakes adventure that will keep you guessing and breathless until the very end.'
Michael Gerard Bauer, author of Don't Call Me Ishmael

So Engaging


I think this book is Amazing and I think if you like Action book I would 100% recommend. There is so much thrill to it and a lot of unexpected turns. I also think if you like to be left with a lot of questions this is totally the book for you!!!



I would try to read it.


It started off really great. Then plot collapsed, the characters got boring and spent a lot of time in the intro then finishes in a quick clap. The proverb in the back is good though!



Great for younger readers.


My daughter who is 10 years old, loved this book, she could'n't put it down. I read it after her and yes its a great story for young readers, very easy to read, characters are portrayed really well and the story line is simple but keeps you reading.



Good Read


Good, High interest - keeps you engaged and an easy read.
