In a bunker hidden deep beneath London live five extraordinary kids: meet world-famous hacker Jack, gadget geek Charlie, free runner Slink, comms chief Obi and decoy diva Wren. They were in foster homes but have banded together to be a kind of a family. They’re not just friends; they’re URBAN OUTLAWS. They outsmart London’s crime gangs and hand out their dirty money through Random Acts of Kindness (R.A.K.s). They might see a mother with not enough clothes or food for her baby or an old person with a run-down home. They buy whatever is needed to help that person. Obi (obese) stays in the bunker and runs the cameras, microphones etc from there, Slink sneaks into buildings, climbing almost anything, Jack is the ideas man and Charlie is the hardware/software whizz.
The first in a series, Urban Outlaws is an action packed from start to finish, full of high tech computer savvy, and RAK (Random acts of kindness), this is a bit Oliver Twist, a bit Robin Hood and a lot FANTASTIC!
