My comments:

Kelly Logan has only 16 years and she lived with your grandfather in the isle of skye
Your parents dead in plane crash when she was very young.
She is on her way to London to find a job, because your Uncle Max send a letter, he said I could come and live. I could look a job in London, He’s got a big house in a part of Nort London called highgate.he lives there with his son, Adam. ”Max is a newspaper photographer”.
She reads about the tall man in the newspaper, he’s a dangerous criminal, but nobody knows what he looks like, except that he’s over two metres tall.
When she arrived to London your cousin waiting for her, Adam said “Welcome to London cousin”. Adam drove Kelly around the centre of London. She really couldn’t believe was the number of people everywhere.
Adam pointed to a building in front of the bank building. Suddenly she remembered the newspaper story about the Tall Man and the small silver card which was found next to the body whit just letter on it-T.M.
“Yes, I read about it,” she said.
Minutes later they arrived in Highgate. Kelly liked her uncle’s house at once.
Their max was of trip in Paris, your cousin Adam went to a party, she was alone, when she received a message for telephone for their uncle, the man's voice it sounded very strange, “say that drake phoned-Gordon Drake. And tell him the visitor is arriving in December. That’s all. He sounded...afraid”.
Two days later Max Logan came back from France. Kelly received with great happiness to your uncle and he was very happy too.
They talked about Kelly’s grandfather and Adam, Suddenly Kelly remembered the message, she says your uncle, I nearly forgot. A man called Gordon Drake phoned and left a message. He said “The visitor arrive in December”.
One afternoon she and her uncle watching television together, news about crime in France, a rich man had been murdered very early to the morning and robbery six paintings. Silver card was found next to the dead millionaire. On it were two letters-T.M.-the tall man.” Kelly looked at her uncle, he was sitting, listening to every word. The newsreader had another man with him, a crime expert. What do we know about the tall man? The newsreader asked.
He answer, no very much, I'm very afraid. All we know is that has there is committed crimes in almost every country Europe. And we know he’s very, very dangerous. The only description we have is that he’s between forty-five an fifty and over two metres tall. There are simply photos of him anywhere.
Days later Kelly and Adam, received a bad news, Max had an accident.
They arrived at the hospital…

For know ending, I recommend you read the book, is very interesting !!!.
