Review Text

This series has great appeal for boys. The stories are action packed adventures that keep the reader guessing. Forbidden Game sees a boy with sickle cell disease, who is bullied at school, turn hero to save his classmates on a school trip. In Wanted One Body, two brothers find a strange man dead on the floor of a shop. When they return the next day the body has gone and they resolve to get to the bottom of the cover-up. Jack is running away from home when the train he is on is hijacked. The suspense builds in Runaway Train as the train hurtles out of control. (7-10 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
