Product description

In London, 1605, Tom’s finger is on the button. His choice will rewrite history… Remember the 5th of November? You know: Guy Fawkes and all that? If you do, we’re guessing there’s no way you’d help a stranger fill the Houses of Parliament with massive barrels of black powder. But Tom doesn’t know what you know. None of that stuff has even happened yet. All he knows is, he’s got to help his father. Dad’s been sentenced to hang. A stranger, the Falcon, says he can stop it. But first he needs a bit of help from Tom… How long till Tom figures out what that black powder is really for? Then what should he do? Save his dad – or save the king?

  • An explosive life-and-death adventure set during the Gunpowder Plot
  • A beautifully written tale of loyalty, friendship and doing the right thing
  • A rip-roaring quest that takes you inside Guy Fawkes’s villainous plot
  • A must-read for fans of Coram Boy, Buffalo Soldier or Mary Hooper
