The Lovereading4Kids comment
A new boy-spy takes centre stage in an action packed sporting drama. As a selected athlete, Jake’s home for the next two weeks is the Olympic Advantage Complex. Jake is looking forward to training for gold with other top athletes but when Otto, a German weightlifter, keels over in front of him and is crushed by his own barbell Jake knows there is much to report back to MI6. Jake’s first solo mission is thrilling stuff.
The Edge (Striker 3) by Nick Hale
International football meets the world of espionage and counter-terrorism in a nail-biting action thriller! Jake can't believe he's been scouted for Olympic Advantage. It's a dream come true to train with the top teenage athletes from around the world...these are the kids that will go on to win gold medals! His dad has come along but promises to stay behind the scenes; this is Jake's moment. But the sunny Florida camp is hiding a nasty secret. The German weight-lifter is crushed by a barbell, painkillers are being issued illegally and many of the athletes are getting seriously aggressive. Jake knows something is up, and he's in the perfect position to report back to MI6. It's his first mission on his own. Popov will be watching...
