Kate’s father thought he could play Robin Hood. That is entertaining when the Sheriff of Nottingham is the baddy but frightening in real life. One day she was on a student hike in the Scottish Highlands. The next. she was on a plane, fleeing for her life.
Money can be created and destroyed at the click of a computer mouse. Kate’s father called his The Golden Mouse and said it could work wonders. Kate thought he was joking. Then, one day, she received a frantic telephone call from him.
Father was in desperate need of her help. He said she was the only person he could trust. She could fly a plane and knew how to handle a gun. He wanted her to fly him to a remote Pacific hideout where he would be safe.
It was a confused conversation. Kate understood little of what he was saying but one thing was clear. Father knew too much about the world’s banking system. He said it was no longer based on gold but on binary bits in cyber space. That was his area of expertise and he had found out more than anyone should know.
He had created backways into the computer systems of the major banks and been found out. Criminals could make a fortune out of him. Terrorists could create a financial crisis. Governments wanted him dead. Father’s solution was simple … he must fake his death and vanish.
The Hansens get involved when Humphrey is called upon to crack computer codes used in banking. David Paget is recruited to help Kate. Lizzie investigates Kate’s strange family.
The Golden Mouse is Book 3 in the Hansen Files Series.
