Shockwave Synopsis

Third high-octane instalment in the bestselling author's compelling Jack Courtney Adventures, following Cloudburst and Thunderbolt.

On the pretext of making a film for his mother's environmental protection work, Jack wangles an expedition to the Arctic with his friends Amelia and Xander and cousin Caleb. But Xander's investigations into the mysterious backers funding their adventure raises Jack's suspicions. Is the renewable energy investment company really as environmentally responsible as it claims to be? While sledding with dogs, ice fishing, driving snowmobiles and sleeping in a self-made igloo, accidents beset them. Then disaster strikes when Caleb takes on a pack of wolves.

Can Jack really trust his mother's friend Jonny Armfield to come to their help, or is he part of the problem?

An exciting book, filled with action and suspense.

This is the third Jack Courtney adventure, although you don't have to have read the previous books to enjoy this one.
Jack and his friends Amelia and Xander are off on a trip to the Arctic with his cousin Caleb to make a video for a competition focusing on endangered animals and climates.

When Xander digs up some news about what is happening where they are going, they decide to look in to it and find out what is really happening.

Jack and crew face disasters such as wolves and avalanches and things much bigger which put then danger. They find themselves alone, except for Jonny who they aren't sure if they can trust.

This book has lots of short chapters which makes it ideal for dipping in and out of - although it had me gripped!
