Twelve-year-old Danny Woo was born and raised in the Mysterium Circus, a “new circus” outfit made up of eccentrics and artists with extraordinary talents. But after the sudden and suspicious death of his parents, Danny finds himself caught up in a plot that threatens to destroy much more than his beloved circus.
Armed with the tricks his parents taught him, from lock picking to hypnosis to death-defying escape stunts, Danny must fight to survive and uncover the truth . . . before time runs out.
