Description

"It's Father," my brother said. "He's in trouble. We've got to get him."

Prince and Emmanuel are stunned to hear that someone who says she's their mother is looking for them. Can it really be her, after four long years of separation? The boys are scared and suspicious. And then there's another shock - they learn that their father is trapped in Tanzania, blackmailed by gangsters to pay off an impossible debt. The boys make a big decision - somehow they must find the money to get to Africa, bring their father home and reunite their family. Even if it means going back to stealing...
