Charlie Ashanti - lion-rescuer, shipwreck survivor, circus veteran, son of asthma cure-inventing scientists, and Catspeaker - is safe. Or is he? Reunited with his parents in Morocco, Charlie thinks that his old enemy, Maccomo the lion tamer, is being held captive by the lions. And nobody has seen his other enemy, Rafi Sadler, for ages. But all is not as it seems. Charlie finds himself kidnapped by Maccomo and thrown onto a boat with an unknown destination. But help is on its way in the form of his parents, Mabel, the lions, Claudio, King Boris, and Sergei the cat. After an amazing and dangerous voyage through Morocco, Ghana and beyond, Charlie and his friends at last come up with a plan to bring the evil Corporacy - and Maccomo - down. Charlie has come full circle and, at last, the truth is out. This conclusion is full of thrills and humour. Age 10 plus.
