… London teen caper that slides between the centuries …

AJ has enough to contend in his own hopeless, dead-end life without Slim nicking a gangster’s girlfriend and skateboarder Leon, disappearing after his mum’s death.  Now he’s got a key with his surname on it that leads to the 19th century.  Gardner assured pacing take her vivid characters on an adventure that twists in and out of grim North London council estates and 1830s Clerkenwell through the Jobey door.    The three lads have to dodge the modern day whilst solving a Victorian murder and, in doing so, find a future for themselves.  Recommended.
