The Lovereading4Kids comment

A sharp, fast-paced thriller featuring a 14-year old whose photographic memory causes him to get embroiled in a complex puzzle of kidnapping, bribery, terrorism and on the run from the federal agents. The author is an established writer of suspense thrillers for adults but this is his first foray into writing for teenagers. We absolutely loved it.
