May 2014 Book of the Month A story that crackles with tension as Mila tries to outwit her captors whose technology has her in their grip. Living on Isles, a vividly imagined futuristic world, Mila had hoped to find a new and freer way of life. Instead, she is in thrall to the Agents who have implanted a phone that broadcasts her every move. Mila must go on the run to find freedom. But how can she possibly outwit the super trained force who are sent out to fight her? Mila has a 7 second start. Will that be enough to save her life?

Seven Second Delay by Tom Easton
Mila has 7 seconds. 7 seconds to fight. 7 seconds to escape. Seeking a new life on the futuristic Isles, Mila's time runs out - she's captured by Agents, who implant her with a phone that broadcasts her every move. Now she's on the run, hounded by an elite fighting force who is convinced she poses a dangerous threat to society. Her only advantage: a seven second delay. It's a race against time.
