A fresh start is what he needs. Will he find it in the past or the present?
AJ Flynn has just failed all but one of his major exams, and at almost seventeen years old, he sees a future thatâs far from rosy. So when heâs offered a junior clerk position at a London law firm, he hopes his life is about to changeâand it does, but he could never have imagined how much.
While on the job, AJ finds an old key labeled with his birth date, and heâs determined to find the door it will open. When he does just that, AJ and his group of scrappy friends begin a series of amazing journeys to the pastâ1830, to be exact. And they quickly realize that hardship, treachery, and love havenât changed too much in almost two hundred years.
When they discover a crime that only they can solve, the boys go from wayward youths to intrepid young men with a purpose in life. But with enemies all around, can they unravel the mysteries of the past before the past unravels them?
