The third book in the series follows Jake and his friends back to the 17th century, first to Shakespeare’s London and then to Ming Dynasty China, where megalomaniac Xi Xiang is trying to destroy the phenomenon of world trade. As their search leads them to a mysterious underwater palace, Jake realises the villain may hold the key to his brother’s disappearance, who could still be alive. It’s a race against the clock to find him and stop Xi Xiang before he starts a world war between East and West.
