"After Tom Trelawney accidentally burns down his family's garden shed, Tom's parents, who are away on vacation, send him to stay with his eccentric Uncle Harvey in New York City. But Uncle Harvey is headed for Peru, supposedly to hunt for treasure, and means to leave Tom behind. Maybe Tom wouldn't have worked so hard convincing his uncle to take him along if he'd known what he was getting into... Hailed as a "perfect summer read" by Booklist magazine, Island of Thieves is a nonstop blend of mystery and exciting action that's a good pick for Alex Rider fans."
