This is the thrilling sequel to the award-winning "Keeper". As the city of San Juan pulses to summer's sluggish beat, its teenage football prodigy El Brujito, the Little Magician, vanishes without trace. Paul Faustino, South America's top sports journalist, is reluctantly drawn into the mystery. As a story of corruption and murder unfolds, he is forced to confront a bitter history of slavery, and the power of the occult. This title is a sequel to the bestselling "Keeper", which won the 2004 Branford Boase Award and the 2004 Bronze Nestle Smarties Book Award. It is longlisted for the "Guardian" Children's Fiction Prize 2007.
