Alfie and his dad have a big problem.
Alfie’s big brother, Jacob has disappeared moments before an all-important boxing match.
While searching for him, Alfie encounters two shifty-looking men who sound like they’ll do anything to get their dirty hands on the prize-money.
Soon, Alfie finds himself trapped in the heart of a scandal.
Can Alfie safely return Jacob to the ring in time…?
Or will he have to take his big brother’s place…?
It’s Crime-Thriller meets Rocky!
Perfect for fans of Jacqueline Wilson and Phil Earle!
