Just before he turns twelve, Tony Jones’ picture appears in the West newspaper. It’s a close up, showing little drops of water on his face, his hair still wet from the sea and a smile in his eyes. From that day on, his life goes into a spin.
• What is happening to Tony?
• Who is Beady Eyes?
• Why is the car tailing him?
When Tony is roughed up by Tattoo Boy, after the protest march, he knows he is in big trouble.
He and his best friends, Kim, Franka and Ann call themselves the Gang of Four; should he bring them into it?
What follows is more like a detective movie than anything Tony could ever have imagined would happen to him.
