Jonah Wish is in an elite team of teenage thieves lead by master criminal Nathaniel Coldhardt. Coldhardt plans every mission with absolute precision. So when Jonah and the rest of the team break into a highly secure compound to steal a precious sword, they can't quite beleive it when they discover that someone has beaten them to it. Is Coldhardt losing his touch?
But there's worse to come. A member of the team is kidnapped - from their secret base, no less. Who has taken her and why? And is her abduction linked to the missing sword? There have been rumours in the underworld about a shadowy organisation called the Sixth Sun, who have shown interest in the sword, and now it's time for Jonah to do what he's best at: put the pieces together and decode the mystery. Literally.
In a mission which takes him from Guatemala to the jungles of Mexico, Jonah must rely on his unusual talent for codebreaking to try and decipher the connection before it's too late.
Arrested and put in a young offender's institute for using his precocious code-solving skills to steal money, things are looking bleak for Jonah Wish.
Then, in the dead of night, a gang of four teenagers break him out. They work for Nathaniel Coldhardt, debonair master criminal and leader of a team of highly trained teen thieves. Kids with amazing skills but no one who will miss them.
Jonah, a genius at cryptology, is their newest recruit. His talents are perfect for the next assignment Coldhardt has in mind - his most daring yet.
But before Jonah can turn his thoughts to deciphering the complex Egyption symbols and the treasures - or secrets - they hide, he has to decide if this is what he wants for himself. Coldhardt may have chosen him, but will he choose Coldhardt? And does he have any choice . . .
