Carl Fendigg, "Ice-cold Carl", was Tony's hero. He was the top motor-bike race man, and he didn't mind if you did stay around his yard - as long as you didn't get too much in the way.
So when Tony saw it was one of Carl's bikes that nearly knocked down Sash's little sister, Sunny, in a get-away from a robbery, you can imagine how he felt.
Of course,
he knew that Carl wouldn't get mixed up in anything like that. So he and his friend Sash set out to find who it was had. And that landed them in more adventures than they had bargained for.
