Publisher's Summary

Here is a thrilling adventure story about a mysterious underground world, read by Jack Davenport. Fourteen-year-old Will Burrows lives with his parents and younger sister Rebecca in London. He has little in common with any of them, except for a passion for digging, which he shares with his father, a museum curator and doctor of archaeology. When his father suddenly disappears after a row with his mother, the police believe he has just gone away for a while to cool down. But Will is unconvinced, and decides to investigate with his best friend, Chester.

get the unabridged version!

Main recommendation: get the unabridged version. The abridged version is so chiseled--it feels like you go right from "set up" to plot summary, and then it's over.

fabulous

I can't tell you how great this book is! My grade six learning centre boys loved it! They actually ran to class and begged to listen/read it. The discussion was incredible. The language including metaphores, personal experiences the characters had that my students could relate to and the historical content was so well connected! We want more!
