Sam Clarke wanted to be a pirate, but her literacy skills were too advanced and she had to settle for writing instead. She is addicted to rock music, coffee and Japanese manga. Her gardening skills are abysmal and she is rumoured to have killed a potted cactus. She currently lives in London next to a very noisy bar. This is her first book.
The Twelfth Ring
Fifteen-year-old Noah Larsson is shipped off to the Bahamas to spend time with a man he barely knows: his father Magnus. To his surprise, supposedly penniless Magnus runs an archaeological consultancy from an incredible yacht equipped with military-grade security. Desperate to connect with his father, Noah asks to be included in the consultancy’s next assignment.
He joins Magnus’s unlikely associates – fellow archaeologist Miguel, his haughty teenage daughter Isabelle, ex-Special Forces agent Ariel and young university-drop-out Viggo – in their search for a mysterious medieval ring. But someone else is after it. Someone who will stop at nothing to get his hands on it.
As Noah risks his life to delve into the ring’s mystery, he finally comes face-to-face with the truth about his father. And it’s a revelation that will change his life forever.
