This leaves Tom is stuck in his late grandfather’s house when the rest of his family goes out for lunch and a nicely-dressed robber comes looking for something important. Losing the robber, Tom finds the clues that will lead him to millions of dollars. Now how is he going to get to India and follow the clues?
Tom’s story is a great adventure that everybody wants to fall into: traveling the world, getting rich, and doing family history all at the same time! The treasure hunt never slows, and the traffic in India never speeds up. With bad guys on his trail, nothing goes according to plan, but, with the help of friends, everything just might turn out okay. The Sultan’s Tigers was a thrilling read.
