(The first book in the Terror Time Spies series)
A novel by

It is 1793 and Henry Bonespair and his little sister Spike are about to make a very dangerous journey to French Revolutionary Paris. It is Henry Bonespair's birthday too and the leader of The Rat Catchers, a bold young gang of loyal friends, who love imitating the daring exploits of a rumoured English hero, The Scarlet Pimpernel, has just received a special present from his father's employer, William Wickham. But in giving Henry Bonsepair his fabulous silver Chronometer, Wickham has his own dark motives, involving a plot top end the Revolution in a stroke, and a shadowy group of Royalists called The League of The Gloved Hand, as strange and ghostly voices are heard around his estate.

When the great trip is suddenly cancelled though, a boring English summer threatens to consume the Rat Catchers, until a pretty French girl staying on the estate is kidnapped by Revolutionary spies. So the children decide to take matters into their own hands, and in a moonlit barn form a brand new gang to help her. The soon-to-be hugely famous Pimpernel Club is born and a series of thrilling adventures begins that not only involves ships, coaches, guillotines, highwaymen and balloons, but a magical watch that may take them travelling through time itself.
