A gripping new thriller in this fast-paced series of Zac Archer’s first mission as an undercover agent for Project 17. Having never thought he’d be selected, Zac is now determined to prove he can do the job. If only everything goes according to plan. Zac does everything he can to keep on track but, as he soon discovers, even the best laid plans are likely to go wrong, very wrong, when you are working in espionage. How Zac rides the rollercoaster and saves himself and his mission is a gripping adventure. Perfect for young fans of 24 and the Alex Rider series.
