'Maddie Finn lives with her mother above a converted stable in the grounds of a big house owned by the gloomy Harold Delamore. It's their 'cosy refuge against the world' and Maddie's favourite task is to walk Sal, Mr Delamore's rare, prize-winning dog. But one day Maddie and her mother are given two months' notice by the trouble-making Delia Delamore, who is home from her boarding school - or has she been expelled?

'When Maddie takes Sal for a walk the next morning, Delia comes too. The unsuspecting girls wander into an alley where a gang of kidnappers is waiting...But who do they want?Maddie Finn is a tense, exciting story of a difficult friendship by award-winning author of The Bamboo Flute, Garry Disher.'
