LoveReading View on The Snake Trap Travis Delaney Investigates

This is the third adventure for Kevin Brooks’ teen private investigator and it starts with an almighty bang. Terrorists lob a grenade into the offices of Delaney & Co leaving one man dead. Then they kidnap Travis. The action continues at this pace throughout the book as Travis, still on the hunt for the people who killed his parents, finds himself in all sorts of life-or-death situations. Brooks’ style – direct and urgent – is brilliantly suited to this sort of story and he’s skilful enough too to allow time for reflection and nuance. An excellent thriller with an impressive and impressively convincing teen central character. ~ Andrea Reece

The Snake Trap Travis Delaney Investigates Synopsis

One moment Travis is trapped in an armed face-off in the offices of Delaney & Co, private investigators. The next terrorists have stormed the building and he's been abducted. Kept captive alongside Winston, the rogue security officer who Travis believes is responsible for his parents' death, Travis is quickly plagued by more questions than answers. As the truth begins to emerge, Travis is faced with the ultimate dilemma: how do you choose between saving your own life or saving the life of someone you love?
