Description

The hole was moving! the walls were falling down… there was a rope under his arms. there was a face above. An anxious face, yelling something down to him, something he didn’t understand. A strange face, with something wrong about the eyes. tanned skin, unshaven, black hair a bit too long. Joey knows there is a Japanese soldier hiding in the hills. It was a Japanese man, a soldier, who hauled him out of the mineshaft, who lit the fire to bring the searchers, and then disappeared. But nobody believes Joey. After all, it is World War 2 and children have nightmares. Joey knows he will have to find the soldier himself – must find him. Could he be part of the invasion force Could he be sending messages to waiting submarines Ages 12+ the hole was moving! the walls were falling down… there was a rope under his arms. there was a face above.
