Luke Harding's third thrilling case involves a series of mysterious murders in which the victims seem to have only one thing in common -- the same name, Emily Wonder. In the bitter cold of winter, the teenage forensic investigator and his robotic assistant, Malc, investigate the three crime scenes and struggle to identify the murder weapons used, as no traces have been left behind. When a young homeless girl named Emily Wonder is reported missing, Luke and Malc rush back to the slums of London to try to save her from the murderer—and from a giant tidal wave that threatens to destroy the city.

unbearable burning pain in her eyes. Tears and sweat rolled down her cheeks
into the soft cushion. She was not tied to the sofa, but she was completely
unable to shift her position. However much she tried, she could not move an
arm, a leg, her head, or any other part of her body. She could not even blink
an eyelid.
