When Alfie Turner loses his mum, it feels like his world is falling apart. She was the glue that held their family together and, now that she's gone, Alfie and his dad don't really know how to be a family without her. And then Alfie meets Alice. Alice is a force of nature and has her own set of problems, but at least when Alfie's with her he can forget about his. Or can he?

Maar op pad daarheen - en nogal op ‘n steil bergpas en in gietende reen van ‘n Laeveldse donderstorm - raak die bus waarmee hulle reis onklaar. En lank nadat die donderstorm bedaar het, staan die logge ou rooi gevaarte nog al die tyd langs die pad, te steeks om ‘n wiel te verroer. Intussen begin dit reeds donker word en meneer Basson word onrustig. Nou nie heeltemal met meneer Basson se toestemming nie, besluit Jasper en sy drie maats dat hulle die wereld moet gaan verken en kyk of hulle nie hulp kan kry nie. En ja werklik, voordat hulle baie ver gevorder het, hoor hulle die gedreun van ‘n vragmotor, wat hulle na ‘n afgesonderde plaashuis lei. Omhul deur die waas van geheimsinnigheid, le die huis tussen die bosse, sonder ‘n lig of enige ander teken van lewe, behalwe die vragmotor wat daar staan. Jasper se kort hare gaan staan nog regopper as gewoonlik, maar hy besluit om deur te druk met sy ondersoek. Hy is immers die leier van die Viermanskap. Maar hy moes liewer net daar omgedraai en teruggestap het skoolbus toe. Dit sou beter gewees het vir almal … Kom deel in die avonture van Jasper!
