Gerald Wilkins never considered himself a particularly exceptional thirteen-year-old. But that was before he inherited twenty billion pounds, a Caribbean island, a yacht, and three estates from a great-aunt he never knew. With this fortune, however, comes a letter. One from his great-aunt Geraldine. One that tells Gerald that she was murdered, and that it's up to him to find out why.

Along with his friends Ruby and Sam, Gerald embarks on a journey that will lead him from the British Museum to dodgy social clubs for the disgustingly rich to mansions in the English countryside to secret places far underground. Who was Geraldine Archer? And what secrets was she hiding? Unless Gerald, Sam, and Ruby can find out before the killer does, they may be next.

      This book is nothing like the title. It doesnt tell about a billionare maybe not yet. I am only on the second chapter 2 pages away from the third and i really like it alot. I didnt put 5 popcorn because i havent read the whole thing. There is a story to this book how i got it but i dont want to explain. Ask someone for assistants this book might actully be worth it. I am saying get the book and when i say something it happens. JK (JUST KIDDING) NO REALLY IM NOT THO
