Suspenseful YA spy thriller that throngs with gaming, guts and deadly risks.

Suspenseful YA spy thriller that throngs with gaming, guts and deadly risks.

Teenager Jack is up to his neck in trouble. His brother is about to be imprisoned for a crime Jack plotted and, on top of that, a secret agency is using this intelligence to force him to join them. Jack’s mission? To infiltrate the manufacturer of a hot new game to discover what’s really going on there. Caught between more than a few rocks and hard places, Jack is forced to make a near impossible decision.

While the premise is strong and the story packed with action, the tendency to over-wordiness and repetitive descriptions slow down the plot in places. Having said that, there’s enough pace-turning peril to recommend it to fans of Alex Rider and Young Bond.

About Michael Lancashire

Michael Lancashire's first serious writing was episodes of The A-Team. Sadly they were not picked up by NBC for some reason, probably a combination of the lack of an agent and the fact that he was 7 and they were written in crayon. Since then he has written for pleasure whenever jobs and family life permit. He lives in the English Midlands with his wife, three kids and an ever changing assortment of chickens, mammals and reptiles.
