Publisher Comments:

"THE DA VINCI CODE meets Alex Rider in this adventure story of secret societies, scientific discoveries, and Chinese pirates." — BULLETIN OF THE CENTER FOR CHILDREN'S BOOKS

Two teens, a shadowy mission, and no turning back. . . . This lavish 1920s journal kicks off a three-part series recounting the adventures of two intrepid siblings tracking their parents disappearance. Starting aboard their uncles research ship, the saga moves at a breathless pace through the streets of Shanghai and on to a terrifying island fortress. Chinese mercenaries, a hateful pirate warlord, and a highminded secret society all play a part in a thrilling tale of intrigue packed with nonstop action and novelty features.

A New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age

An Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award Winner

Synopsis:

This first of three tales begins the story of a sister and brother, who, while searching for their missing parents in 1920s Shanghai, uncover a mysterious secret society. Includes maps, documents, four full-color gatefolds, and extensive appendices and notes.

About the Author

Joshua Mowll has worked as a graphic artist for the MAIL ON SUNDAY since 1994. During that time he has illustrated and drawn everything from space flights, medical procedures, and airplane crashes to ancient pyramid theories, invasions, and laser-guided weaponry. Of Southeast Asian pirates, one of the plot elements in OPERATION RED JERICHO, he says, "The word pirates immediately conjures up images of the Caribbean, Blackbeard, and buried treasure. But for sheer scale and professionalism, Chinese and Southeast Asian piracy has a much longer and more notorious history." Joshua Mowll lives in London. OPERATION RED JERICHO is his first book.
