The Lovereading4Kids comment
The first in a new action series that has been a huge hit with fans of Alex Rider. Jimmy has led a pretty normal life until at 11 he begins to develop extraordinary powers. To start with this is pretty cool until he is being chased by the British secret service, as these powers are a result of extreme genetic engineering – the aim of which is to make Jimmy a weapon.
All action, great characters guaranteed to get your 12+ boys reading late into the night. If you like Jimmy Coates Killer then Jimmy Coates Target is now available in paperback.
Jimmy Coates: Killer by Joe Craig
Bending his knees, Jimmy let go of the windowsill and slowly tipped backwards. Surely this is impossible, he thought, even as he could feel himself doing it. He pushed out with his legs and the thrust sent him flying backwards into the air… Then his fingers locked on to the cold wire of the fence, poised in a perfect handstand on the top.
Who are the mysterious men chasing Jimmy across the city?
Why are they after him?
What are Jimmy's parents keeping from him and who can he trust?
And how come he can suddenly do all this really cool stuff…?
Find out in this electrifying debut novel from Joe Craig. Young, multitalented and brimming with ideas, this new HarperCollins author is destined to become a firm favourite with children everywhere.

“A gripping action-thriller that’s packed with twists.” Funday Times
“The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum.” VOYA
