Description

Young Bond and James Bond meet Alex Rider and Cherub in this brilliantly written, fast-paced spy action thriller. All credibly delivered from somebody who knows all about counter-intelligence...

Kieron and his friend Sam are shocked to see a man kidnapped in a Newcastle shopping centre right in front of their eyes. The boys quickly realise that the kidnapped man left something behind in the scuffle - an earpiece and glasses. Kieron puts them on and realises he can see not what is front of him, but a busy, tourist city, somewhere very hot - in Mumbai...

Kieron has accidentally stumbled upon the undercover world of Rebecca 'Bex' Wilson - a freelance agent working for the British Secret Intelligence Service. And without her handler Bradley (the man who was kidnapped), Bex is in trouble. She doesn't know who of her usual contacts she can trust, and like it or not, she is going to have to use teenage Kieron to get her out of danger. Before Kieron and Sam know it, they are part of a mission to stop a weapon of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands...

High-octane action and fast-paced adventure - guaranteed.

Review quote

A wonderful and highly enjoyable novel that is a fresh and exciting take on the teenage spy book and an excellent gateway into the world of spy thrillers * The Unseen Library * I thoroughly enjoyed this as, in common with Andrew's other books, it's cleverly plotted with a clear sense of direction. It also draws on current tensions and political situations across the world... The fact that Andrew Lane used to work for the Ministry of Defence gives his writing an extra level of authenticity, especially when describing the numerous high tech gadgets that appear throughout. With the main characters quickly becoming aware that they are in way over their heads, the energy and pace is relentless right through the book * Books For Keeps *
