What if you knew your missing parents were alive, but you couldn’t tell anyone? How would you find them and who would you trust?
Kensy and Max are now agents-in-training at Pharos, a covert international spy network. Christmas break sees the twins back at Alexandria for training and a celebration like no other, but where are their parents and why can’t they come home?
Thankfully, a school trip to Rome provides a welcome distraction. Amid the history and culture of Italy’s capital, they discover a runaway boy and whisperings of Mafia involvement. It looks like Kensy and Max’s harmless excursion may just turn into their very first mission.
“Jacqueline Harvey has a real talent for creating very believable characters and scenarios which immediately engage her readership and leaves them begging for more . . . Highly recommended for your readers from around Year 3 upwards who enjoy everyday stories with a hefty twist of wild adventure, sleuthing and drama.”

“There’s fast driving, secret passages and explosions, as well as new friendships and a lovely bond between the twins – they always look out for each other. I really enjoyed this book’s fast pace and interesting characters.”
