Gerald Wilkins never considered himself a particularly exceptional 13-year-old. But that was before he inherited 20 billion pounds, a Caribbean island, a yacht, and three estates from a great-aunt he never knew. With this fortune, however, comes a letter. One from his great-aunt Geraldine. One that tells Gerald that she was murdered, and that it's up to him to find out why.
Along with his friends Ruby and Sam, Gerald embarks on a journey that will lead him from the British Museum to dodgy social clubs for the disgustingly rich to mansions in the English countryside to secret places far underground. Who was Geraldine Archer? And what secrets was she hiding? Unless Gerald, Sam, and Ruby can find out before the killer does, they may be next.
I loved it so much that I can't wait to read the second book! I usually don't like books like this but I loved this one!
What I liked about this book is that at the end of each chapter there was always a cliff hanger. As an 10 year old I give this book a 5 star rating and I recommend it to other kids my age. Thx for writing this book Richard Newsome I LOVED IT!!!
