About the Book

Young Gerald Wilkins’ life is in danger. The world’s mostvaluable diamond has been stolen and a guard lies unconsciousin the British Museum, two sedative darts protrudingfrom his backside -- not something Gerald Wilkins knows orcares anything about. Not until he finds himself on a privateluxury jet heading to London for the funeral of a great aunt hehas never met. Not until he inherits her estate, worth twentybillion pounds. Not until he opens a bundle of envelopes sheleft behind.

Was she murdered? Who stole the diamond? And what isthe mysterious artifact that everyone seems to be searching for?

With the help of the Valentine twins -- the rat-fearing Samand the gymnastic champ Ruby -- Gerald’s got a mystery tosolve. A mystery that will take him into secret passageways, amusty jumbled bookshop, an ancient crypt, the tower of a ruinedchurch and a colossal cavern where the secret of a pricelesstreasure lies protected by deadly booby traps.

The Billionaire’s Curse is an irresistible action story withan array of curious characters, some ancient folklore and anengrossing whodunit guaranteed to keep young and not-so-youngup late turning the pages.
