In a nutshell: fast-paced movie set action and adventure

Finn has such a cool job: he’s the stunt double for the teenage hero of a hugely popular action film franchise, but it’s not the dream come true you might expect. The film’s star hates him, while the director is set on getting the best shot, whatever the cost. At first Finn is happy to take the risks, but as filming continues, he and his young co-stars realise they’re in very real danger. The drama never lets up and in a fabulous plot twist the youngsters are dropped into thick jungle to track down and capture a possibly mythological creature. Yes, it stretches credulity but no-one’s going to care when the story is as exciting as this! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Stunt Double by Tamsin Cooke

An action-packed adventure story with an exciting film location setting. Finn is a free-running black belt, with a talent for acting-but when his big break arrives, it's not the role he was expecting at all. Recruited as a stunt double, he's pushed to his limits-scaling walls at high speed, jumping from dizzying heights, and diving into rocky waters-all without any safety gear. He's determined to push himself, but as the stunts get more dangerous, the lines between movie and reality are really starting to blur, and it becomes clear that he'll be luckily to escape this shoot with his life.

A brand new adventure for readers aged 9+, from the author of The Scarlet Files.

Reviews

Praise for The Scarlet Files series:

'Cat Burglar is great, galloping fun; it is chock full of breathless action and has a plot that moves faster than a rocket full of monkeys. The Book Zone (For Boys)

The story is so pacy and thrilling that the fantasy element doesn't seem at all unlikely: readers will be swept along by the drama TheBookBag

This is an unusual, exciting adventure story It will keep you on the edge of your seat. Primary Times

Tamsin Cooke has created exciting and engaging characters who lead the reader through the many twists and turns of the story. Readers who are looking for action and adventure will not be disappointed by this book. BookTrust'
