Hello, Gerald. I hope this isn't too weird for you--a letter
from beyond the grave! By now you are my heir and worth a good deal
of money. I hope you don't mind. . . . I expect you've figured out
that I was murdered. I would like you to find out
who did it.
Gerald Wilkins had only been hoping for a ski holiday, but plans
change when a great aunt he's never met leaves him her entire
estate worth twenty billion pounds!). Whisked by his parents to
London, England, Gerald is given a letter and told not to open it
until after the funeral.
Now he's got a mystery to solve. With the help of his new
friends, Sam and Ruby Valentine, Gerald follows the clues into
secret passageways, a musty jumbled bookshop, an ancient crypt and
a colossal cavern where the secret of a priceless treasure lies
protected by deadly booby traps.
