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 *
