In this new thriller in the exciting "Tunnels of Moose Jaw" series from best-selling writer Mary Harelkin Bishop, Andrea Talbot takes an unwilling third trip to the spooky tunnels under Moose Jaw and uncovers the exploitation of Chinese immigrant workers.
Andrea has no desire to go back into the tunnels. But then her friends Kami and Eddie Wong accidentally find themselves there, and she has no choice but to go back in time to rescue them - with the help of her ten-year-old brother Tony. Andrea finds a shocking new problem in the tunnels. Indentured Chinese workers toil in miserable conditions, for pitifully small wages. Smuggled into Canada by unscrupulous operators, they have no choice but to keep working - to save money to pay the infamous Head Tax the Canadian government imposes on Chinese immigrants.
Andrea is outraged at their treatment. Many people are profiting from this ruthless eploitation, none more than the nasty crook in charge of it all, Mean-Eyed Max. In this harsh world. Kami is sent to work in a laundry, Eddie to unload produce in a grocery store. Andrea has to save her friends, but what about the other workers? With the help of her friends and the mysterious Mr. Wong, she and Tony help catch the bad guys and rescue the workers too.
