A Jack Courtney Adventure
Adventure runs in the blood
Jack Courtney has lived in the UK his whole life. But this summer his parents are travelling to the Democratic Republic of Congo for a conference, and they’ve promised to take Jack and his friends with them.
When his parents go missing in the rainforest, abducted by mercenaries, nobody seems to have any answers. Jack is pretty sure that it has to do with the nearby tantalum mines, but he needs to prove it. Along with Amelia and Xander, Jack must brave the jungle to save his parents. Standing in his way is a member of his own family – Caleb Courtney.
There are mountain gorillas, forest elephants and hippos, but also bandits, mercenaries and hostile tribes. The three friends will need their wits about them if they are to save Jack’s parents, and their own lives too.
A brand-new three-book series for readers aged 10+ from the one and only master of adventure, starring a young modern-day descendant of the beloved Courtney family.
