The Lovereading4Kids comment

A spine tingling thriller from the chilling opening to the very last page, the twists and turns of the Gold Strike plot follow Carl Hobbes, teenager hacker extraordinaire, as he keeps one step ahead of the different but equally dangerous powers that are after him. A mesmerising, clever and page turning read full of tension and danger in which nothing can be taken for granted. Why not check out Matt’s other edge-of-your seat thriller – Inside the Cage.

Synopsis

Goldstrike by Matthew Whyman

Carl may have escaped from Camp Twilight, but now he's being pursued by a bounty hunter in the pay of the US government, and an al-Quaeda assassin. Wanted dead by one and alive by the other, he must use all his skills as a manipulator of both systems and people to survive. Can he play one enemy against the other in his bid to live another day? Hiding out in the least likely place possible - a warehouse hiding untold treasures - Carl has to harness the powers of Cleo, the super-computer who controls it.

For Cleo is primed to unleash aggressive counter-measures at the least sign of intrusion - but can Carl get her on side?
