Against his better judgement, football mad Mark agrees to help his oldest friend Lucy to take some photos of Southend Pier for their half term project. When Lucy hurts herself exploring the sealed off lower deck, Mark (who knows he should know better) goes to her rescue.
Only, neither of them is prepared for the adventure that awaits them as suddenly they’re not in Essex any more.
To make it worse, the teenagers have: no money, no friends and only what they can remember from their history lessons to help them.
Desperate to get home, they end up in the East End of London in 1909, where one simple mistake inextricably links them to at least two key figures of the 20th century. Things get even more complicated when it becomes obvious that these 20th Century Greats – if left to their own devices – will destroy the Fabric of Time itself: thus making it impossible for Lucy and Mark to get back to 2013.
Then just when Mark thinks it couldn’t possibly get worse, it does; as Lucy and Mark discover a top secret facility below the doomed Aldwych Strand Underground station.
A mix of time travel, soldiers and spies – this is a book for teenagers of all ages
