Special Agent Starkey is out to prove Hugh is a traitor and accuses the boys of helping him escape. To complicate things a beautiful mystery woman called Charity is also on their uncle's trail. Meanwhile Frank and Joe are stranded in a strange city far from home, being hunted down by two desperate gangs-with orders to shoot to kill....
From inside the book:
INTO THE JAWS OF DEATH
As they ran across the Golden Gate Bridge, a bullet spanged off a girder. Frank looked over his shoulder. Feodor and Oleg were out of the car, shooting at them.
"We'll never make it," he said.
Joe eyed the dark waters below. "There's one chance," he said.
"Too dangerous," Frank said. "If we get caught in the undertow-" He cut himself off as he glanced over his shoulder, then back at Joe. Feodor was down on one knee, taking careful aim.
"Right," said Joe. He knew that look in his brother's eye, the look that said one chance in a million was better than no chance at all.
"Let's do it."
