Synopsis

Jordan Stryker Bionic Agent by Malcolm Rose

Cybernetically-enhanced, bionic crime fighter Jordan Stryker is going to have the criminals running for the shadows in the first of this gripping new action-adventure series for the Twenty-First Century. Twelve-year-old Alan Smith's life is changed forever when a chain-reaction of explosions rips through his home, killing his mother and blowing off Alan's right arm. But where Alan Smith dies, Jordan Stryker is born - a technologically-enhanced, bionic boy built to fight crime. Now, acting as an undercover agent for secret police force Unit Red; his rebuilt arm can punch through steel; his brain links directly to the internet; his hearing is super-sensitive, and he can spot hidden weapons thanks to his X-Ray vision - which definitely has other 'perks'. On his first mission for Unit Red, Jordan is plunged into an underground world of dangerous gangs and extreme activists in the hunt for the criminals responsible for the explosion that killed his mother. But as Jordan struggles to come to terms with the loss of his family, remnants of Alan's old life are around every corner, especially when it reunites him with Amy - Alan's best friend, and daughter of one of London's biggest gangland bosses. This work offers a fast-paced, thrill ride with Britain's newest, bravest, most up-to-date action hero, from the best-selling author of Kiss of Death .

About the Author

Malcolm Rose

Until Easter 1996, Malcolm was a Lecturer in Chemistry at The Open University. He carried out research in analytical chemistry, particularly in the area of health, and taught mainly organic chemistry. However this left very little time for fiction writing, resulting in much of it being tackled after midnight. He is now a full-time writer.

A word from Malcolm:

I began writing stories while I was carrying out research at York for my DPhil degree in chemistry. Writing became a means of escape from everyday life. While I was at York, my then girlfriend (now wife) read my efforts and commented that I ought to try and get something published. I had never thought of writing as anything other than a hobby. Besides, as I thought then, a budding chemist couldn’t possibly be any good at it! Anyway, I joined a writers’ club to find out how to submit a manuscript to a publisher and, to cut a long story short, found a publisher in William Collins for my first novel, Rift.

I am now over half a century old, married to Barbara and have one son (Colin) who is an architect. I read all of my stories aloud to Barbara and Colin and they help me with their comments. My thirty books can be classed mainly as thrillers or crime and you’ll find a list of them – with descriptions – under ‘Books.’
