Publisher's Summary

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it.

Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael’s world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It’s a bag of clues. It’s a bag of hope. It’s a bag that will change everything.

Soon Raphael and his friends Gardo and Rat are running for their lives. Wanted by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking, fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man’s mission to put right a terrible wrong.

And now it's three street-boys against the world...

Great listening for the whole family

Our entire family was engrossed in the book on our recent trip. Our children range from 10-15 and even us adults loved the different approach taken for this audio book. Having different voices read throughout the book really drew us into the story.

Insightful and shocking<br />

This was a great insight into the life of kids in poor countries and the shocking corruption that maintains that poverty. Interesting and authentic narration with different voices for each character. Story was a gripping adventure and mystery.

Really good :)))

I didn't think it would be that good but once I got started and got into it.. I couldn't stop reading it. Because it is split up into different parts it got a bit confusing and I got confused easily with all the different characters and their point of view.. But overall it was GREAT!

A great story, well told

A great story, very well narrated. Once it gets going the plot rockets along at a good pace and keeps you wanting to know what will happen next. Great variety!
