Max Cassidy Trilogy
This is Paul Adam’s gripping trilogy for younger readers, featuring teenage escapologist Max Cassidy.
By day, 14-year-old Max is a normal school boy, living in London, but by night he is a dare-devil performer, nicknamed the ‘Half-Pint Houdini’.
Max’s father, Alexander, a world famous escapologist, disappeared two years earlier in the Central American country of Santo Domingo. His body was never found, but Max’s mother, Helen, was convicted of Alexander's murder, and is serving a twenty-year prison sentence.
Max is convinced that his father is still alive. He is determined to track him down - and to get his mother out of prison.
