FIVE EXTRAORDINARY ORPHANS. ONE INCREDIBLE MYSTERY.
UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF THE WINTERBORNE HOME FOR VENGENACE AND VALOUR
When 11-year-old April joins a group of kids living at Winterborne Home she doesn't expect to be there for very long. But she soon learns that this home isn't like any of the others - especially when she unearths the secret of the missing-and-presumed-dead billionaire, Gabriel Winterborne, who is neither missing nor dead but is actually living in a basement lair, sharpening his swords and looking for vengeance.
Now that April knows Gabriel Winterborne is alive, she must turn to the other orphans to keep him that way. As a looming new danger threatens to take Gabriel down once and for all, they must use their individual talents to find a way to make sure this home for misfits isn't lost to them for ever.
Because at the Winterborne Home, nothing is what it seems, no one is who they say they are and nowhere is safe. And now a ragtag group of orphans must unravel the riddle of a missing heir, a supposed phantom and a secret key, all without alerting the adults of Winterborne House that trouble is afoot.

She lives in the Midwest where her life is either very ordinary or the best deep-cover legend ever. She'd tell you more, but...well...you know...
A thrilling mystery for whodunnit fans looking for their next Nancy Drew, the first in Ally Carter's new series is a joyful adventure packed full of daring escapades, edge-of-your-seat tension, and bright, believable characters. We can't wait for the next one * BookTrust *
