NATASCHA AND MAX Raffifi, recently orphaned and new to England, are adjusting nicely to their new life. Anything's better than being on the run. Especially being reunited with their little black-and-white dog, Grk, and living with their friend, Tim.

But one afternoon, Natascha sees a familiar name in the newspaper headlines. The infamous Pelotti brothers are on a crime streak in Brazil. This gang of criminal masterminds has only ever been captured once - by her father. To avenge his senseless death, Natascha and Max know they have to act.

Setting off in the middle of the night, the Raffifis, with Tim and Grk at their side, arrive in Rio de Janiero ready for action. But they find more trouble than they bargained for

The often humorous hyperbole woven into the text is jarringly interrupted by the murder of Ambassador Raffifi and his wife, and a few drop-kicks for adorable Grk (though the dog does extract a measure of revenge by sinking his teeth into several ankles).
