From the Author:

I myself grew up overseas in the countries and places described in my books. My parents were missionaries in Colombia. My own childhood was spent canoeing up and down the jungle rivers, flying in Cessna to boarding school in Venezuela, hiking up the Andes mountains and into the jungles of South America. My hope for the Parker Twin series is that each book , along with its exciting mystery/suspense story, will teach solid values and open children's minds to a great, exciting world of other peoples and cultures not so different under the surface than our own.

From the Back Cover:

Colombia rebels and a volcano ready to erupt

Everyone is on high alert, but Justin and Jenny Parker aren’t really concerned until Uncle Pete, a high-level executive for Triton Oil, is kidnapped—right from under their noses! His kidnappers, Colombian guerrillas, want to trade Uncle Pete for some of their men who are in jail for bombing a Triton Oil facility.

Now the twins must not only decide whether they can trust a new friend, but they have to rescue Uncle Pete before a nearby volcano erupts.

“Page turning, action-packed adventure. These books are cool!”

—Bill Myers, author of Forbidden Doors

“I never knew what was going to happen. I kept leaning forward as I read, waiting to turn the page.”

—Jonathan, age 13

Jeanette Windle has spent most of her life in South America, where she canoed in jungle rivers, hiked the steep Andes mountain trails, and swung from vines off cliffs into huge pools of water below. She and her family—husband, Marty, and four kids— now live in Miami, Florida.
