ALEX SCARROW used to be a graphic artist, then
he decided to be a computer games designer. Finally, he grew up and became an author. He
has written a number of successful thrillers and several screenplays, but it’s YA
fiction that has allowed him to really have fun with the ideas and concepts he was
playing around with when designing games.

He lives in Norwich with his son, Jacob,
his wife, Frances, and his Jack Russell, Max.

Prologue

13 September 2001, New York

Roald Waldstein stared at the Manhattan
skyline. The pallid sky above the south end of the city was still smudged with a faint
pall of dust. The thin twist of smoke, coming from where the Twin Towers had stood just
two days ago, looked like the careless rubbing out of a pencil drawing, a ghost of the
towers that had once been there.

‘God,’ he said. ‘And
it’s
still
burning.’

‘My dad said it might carry on burning
for weeks.’

Roald turned to look at Chanice Williams.
‘Really?’

‘Uh-huh.’ She nodded
confidently, working gum in her mouth almost mechanically. ‘Said so on Fox News
too.’

Like everyone else at Clinton Hill
Elementary School, Chanice had become something of a news-station junkie, tuning in
before and after school, the cartoon channels completely forgotten for now.

‘You think anyone’s alive in
there still?’ asked Roald.

‘Dunno. I heard they lookin’
just in case, tho’.’

He watched the puffs of dark smoke rising
lazily. ‘I hope there’s no one trapped in that … alive. That would
be horrible.’
