Heppie and Hitch (named after Audrey Hepburn and Alfred Hitchcock by their film-buff father) live in a disused artificial flower factory, where their dreamer of a dad, Mo, is trying to set up a film studios. But the genial old landlord suddenly dies, leaving the family threatened with eviction. Not only that, but there are suspicious goings-on around the factory: wet footprints, steamy handprints on windows, screams in disused rooms - the new owner of the factory, Bartholomew Holt and his Iron Fist Security Corps are hunting someone - or something - down, and it doesn't matter who gets in their way...A thriller and a chase, with an uncovering of family secrets, make this a worthy follow-up to The Memory Prisoner.
