Why I liked this title:
When Kat and Ted's visiting cousin, Salim, disappears from the sealed pod of the London Eye Ferris Wheel, they must try to work together to solve the mystery of what fate has befallen him. Ted, suffering from a form of autism, always says his mind is wired with a different operating system than other people but in this case, his different way of thinking may lead him to find Salim before the police do. This page-turner is a very satisfying mystery but is also an engaging tale of a brother and sister, who don't normally get along, working together to find their cousin.
