    Review quote
    "A whodunnit, a cyber-thriller and a family drama: readers of nine or over won't be able to resist the suspense" The Sunday Times "All the ingredients of an exciting read for over-10s - lots of pacey action and snappy dialogue, cliffhanger chapter endings and a central character with the essential qualification of true thriller heroes - an ability to get into a series of ever-worsening scrapes, and yet still emerge triumphant" Daily Telegraph "The suspense builds to a cyber-climax" Yorkshire Post "It is an exciting drama with a thrilling climax" Education Otherwise
    Review text
    Fast-paced is certainly the way to describe this thriller/adventure. When Dominic's mother's new invention, the Virtual Interactive Mobile System, goes berserk and knocks her unconscious, Dominic is up against it to try and uncover the saboteur before any further damage is done. This is well up to the high standard of Blackman's other gripping adventures, A N T I D O T E, Hacker and Thief! (9-12 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
