Synopsis

Codename Quicksilver 1: In the Zone by Allan Frewin Jones

When Zak Archer accidentally witnesses a murder he immediately finds himself in the firing line. Now some very dangerous people want him dead and he is on the run. Luckily, running is something Zak is good at. In fact, when he's 'in the zone' he can run faster, jump further and fly higher than should be humanly possible. But will those skills be enough to save him? What exactly is the truth behind his friend's death? And in a world of spies, secrets and lies - who can he trust?

Reviews

I now love this book ... When I finished this book, I got the second book and started to read it straight away WE SAT DOWN

...there is definitely enough kinetic activity for the young reader, a happy balance between realism and genre action, allowing for things to escalate over the next five books ... crisp, energetic writing THE BOOKBAG

This is a really pacy, exciting story full of twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat. PRIMARY TIMES
