An urchin in a street gang targets a magician who's come to town - only to have his tricks turned on their head. This is an adventure set in the days of the Crucifixion. Flea is the smallest, mouthiest member of the Temple Boys - a street gang who fight daily to survive in a place where nobody cares a jot for them, especially not the Romans who are in charge of the place. When the Magician comes to town, Flea and the gang reckon they can get the better of him, no problem. But his companions - Jude in particular - seem to have their measure right from the start. All is not as it seems.
