A ruthless treasure hunt takes a boy from London to sub-Saharan Africa in this pacey thriller

Long ago in the ancient city of Timbuktu a student pulled off the most daring heist in African history — the theft of 100 million pounds worth of gold. The stolen treasure has remained hidden until now, when teenage hacker Danny Temple discovers a cryptic Arabic manuscript. It’s a good thing Danny is a keen traceur (free runner) because it seems that everyone in London now wants a piece of him. Danny has to run across rooftops and leap from buildings to stay one step ahead of his pursuers. His adrenalin-charged quest leads him to sub-Saharan Africa, and the mysterious cliffs of Bandiagara.
