From the Back Cover

Esme’s hard brown hands lifted fractionally from her sides. Her amber eyes glittered as she faced her enemy. ‘No tricks,’ said Esme. ‘No more lies. You and me are going to fight this out to the finish. Right now.’ Jack doesn’t know what he’s got himself into. One minute he and his best friend Charlie were in Chinatown having crispy duck with Charlie’s dad, then suddenly they were in a mysterious room above a theatre, with some of the strangest characters they’d ever encountered. And they were about to take The Test . . . The Test transformed Charlie – leaving him with the distinctive markings of the Black Tattoo. The boys’ meeting with Esme – a young girl with the most impressive martial arts skills this side of Bruce Lee – her huge and hairy father Raymond, and the mysterious Nick, seemed to have swept Charlie and Jack into a world they had no idea existed. And it was only going to get weirder . . . --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
