Twelve-year-old Reuben spends his days practicing parkour on the highest of buildings in the Lower Downs as a way to escape--but when he finds a peculiar, magical watch, he gets a little more than he's bargained for. When he discovers that the watch has the power to turn its wearer invisible, he's propelled on the adventure of a lifetime.
Now Reuben is being chased by a group of dangerous men called the Directions, and someone--or something--called the Smoke. They all want the watch, and with the help of new friends, it's up to Reuben to unravel the mysteries surrounding it.
New York Times bestselling author Trenton Lee Stewart's latest novel is sure to delight old and new fans alike with the twists and turns of an adventurous mystery reminiscent of The Mysterious Benedict Society series.
