The Seven Keys of Balabad by Paul Haven

Deep under the hot, dusty streets of Balabad, a stash of priceless ancient treasure has lain hidden for centuries, protected by seven secret keys scattered around the globe. Secret, until now...When Oliver Finch and his friend, Zee, stumble across one of the precious objects, they are catapulted into the murky underworld of the city, where thieves lurk and people vanish without trace - and come face-to-face with a criminal mastermind who will stop at nothing to get hold of that key...

About the Author

Paul Haven is a journalist who was, until recently, Bureau Chief of the Associated Press for Pakistan and Afghanistan. He is now Bureau Chief for the AP in Cuba. He has a British wife and two young children. He spends a lot of time in London, not least because his in-laws are there! He has published one previous book in the US, TWO HOT DOGS WITH EVERYTHING (a fantasy novel about baseball) and has plans to follow up THE SEVEN KEYS OF BALABAD with a sequel.
