Tony and his friend Sash had been helping old Mr Betts to decorate his house. And it was while they were preparing the last two rooms that they found the money. There were hundreds of pound notes stuck behind the wallpaper.
There were other people interested in it too. Biff and his friends could always use some, and the police are
always interested in tracing stolen banknotes.
