Silas is recruited from a local remand centre to help at the Centre. At first the children are unsure of him, but he has an affinity with animals and is a great rider. Together they defeat some badger baiters, which means lots of publicity for the Centre.  It does mean though that Silas is recognised, and the Centre is attacked. Silas flees, and no one is sure if he was responsible of not. Be warned: some parts of this book are gory!
