Overview

James R. Hannibal presents a thrilling adventure through history, complete with mysteries, secret items, codes, and a touch of magic in this stunning middle grade debut. Thirteen-year-old Jack Buckles is great at finding things, things normal people have long given up on ever seeing again. If only he could find his father, who has disappeared in London without a trace. But Jack's father was not who he claimed to be. It turns out that he was a member of a secret society of detectives that has served the crown for centuries and membership into the Lost Property Office is Jack's inheritance. Now the only way Jack will ever see his father again is if he finds what the nefarious Clockmaker is after: the Ember. Con un poco de Harry Potter, un poco del Codigo Da Vinci, y la velocidad propia de las novelas de Rick Riordan, la trama de El Gabinete de los Objetos Perdidos está situada en la ciudad de Londres. Jack, un niño de trece años que vive en Estados Unidos, ha viajado con su hermana y su madre para saber más sobre la desaparición de su padre. Jack y su hermana Sadie se separan accidentalmente de su madre y se pierden en Londres, para acabar en una puerta misteriosa donde dice "Oficina de Objetos Perdidos". Desde que entran allí y conocen a la señora Hudson y a su joven asistente Gwen, todo será una serie de aventuras de Jack para averiguar el paradero de su padre y poder salvarlo. Porqué allí, en el gabinete de los objetos perdidos, Jack descubrirá que tiene un poder innato, es un rastreador.
