Overview

Tony, Big Bill, and our protagonist, Squirt, are attacked by a gang and narrowly escape to lick their wounds. Their secret tree house is now exposed and ruined by the gang. They choose to up the ante, seeking revenge, thereby escalating the battle. However, there may be a slight hitch as the rival group is led by Fat Harold, Big Bill’s cousin. The trio decide to raid the rival gang’s hideout; stealing items and trashing the place. The war is on. Three against twelve are bad odds. Out-manned, out-sized, and outsmarted, they are shocked when Big Bill, their strongest and bravest, is captured and held for ransom.
All they need is an army--or a fantastic plan. Squirt and Tony must face their fears and rescue Big Bill from the clutches of the gang led by the formidable Fat Harold. Bill's very life and limb may be at stake. Or are they?

Meet the Author

Most mysteries and suspense novels have to do with cops, lawyers, and PIs. My protagonist is a firefighter and is the first firefighter pulp fiction in Canada. True grit and reality are my writing tenets. My juvenile/middle grade/chapter books have no magic wands, wise talking creatures, vampires, or parallel worlds. I write stories about children, not so much specifically for children. Many adults enjoy my writing because of this. My stories are about unassuming boys who get in trouble and must prove themselves and show the world they have hearts of lions. There's fighting, conflict, loyalty, bullies, integrity, and courage. I've read samples to Grade 4 and 5 students and garnered excellent reviews. I was born in Welland, Ontario, a blue-collar town in the Niagara Peninsula. Backpacked the world and lived in Australia. I've worked as a paperboy, grocery clerk, sales rep, iron worker, framer, painter, mink ranch hand, assembly line rubber factory, concrete laborer, cherry picker, framer, freelance astronaut (no offers), boilermaker apprentice, electrician, various sales jobs, delivery driver, father, coach, and career firefighter and officer for 32 years. I've also played drums in the Black Gold Big Band for 8 years. I retired as fire captain with Edmonton Fire Rescue, a large Canadian metro fire service. I live in Beaumont, Alberta with Gloria, whom I met on a freighter/passenger ship from Jakarta to Singapore. My writing has garnered several awards in a few genres. I've climbed the Great Wall of China, been forced to live in Australia because I was broke when I arrived, honeymooned with Gloria during the Grenada Revolution and saw Maurice Bishop, snorkeled with a marlin, was in Havana when Fidel shocked Cubans and stepped down. My wife made a pot of tea for the Queen of England in N.Z. I travel widely, do a bit of fishing and boating, drink demon rum, manage a writers group, do occasional renos, and sit on my butt outside in the good weather reading a decent book. My writing work consists of travel articles, YA, juvenile, how-tos, and has garnered several awards. Check out my website for some excellent short stories.

    Just finished up this book and i got to say this is such an awes

    Just finished up this book and i got to say this is such an awesome story! It reminded me a bit of Lord of the Flies where kids left to their own having to find out how to live and what to do next to survive. This was such a suspenseful book and had it done within a few reading because i could not set it down! You grow to love the boys in this book and root for them the whole time. Building a relationship with the boys while reading makes it feel even ten times realer and the author does a great job at doing this! 2 Thumbs WAY UP!
