Ted and Kat watched their cousin Salim board the London Eye. But after half an hour it landed and everyone trooped off–except Salim. Where could he have gone? How on earth could he have disappeared into thin air? Ted and his older sister, Kat, become sleuthing partners, since the police are having no luck. Despite their prickly relationship, they overcome their differences to follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin. And ultimately it comes down to Ted, whose brain works in its own very unique way, to find the key to the mystery. This is an unput-downable spine-tingling thriller–a race against time.

A disorder similar to Asperger's syndrome renders 12-year-old Ted an unlikely but completely endearing sleuth in this engrossing story. When his cousin disappears at an amusement park, Ted's disability is turned to an advantage as he methodically sets out to find out what happened. With his stilted but appropriately robotic delivery, narrator Alex Kalajzic completely becomes Ted and just as skillfully handles Kat, Ted's brash teenage sister. He skillfully alternates between characters of different ages, accents, and social classes, and is competent with female voices. A compelling story with lots of red herrings combined with Kalajzic's ability to create vivid characters immerses the listener in this exceptional listening experience. M.H.N.
