Summary

Kieron and his friend Sam are shocked to see a man kidnapped in a Newcastle shopping centre right in front of their eyes. The boys quickly realise that the kidnapped man left something behind in the scuffle - an earpiece and glasses. Kieron puts them on and realises he can see not what is front of him but a busy, tourist city, somewhere very hot - in Mumbai....

Kieron has accidentally stumbled upon the undercover world of Rebecca 'Bex' Wilson - a freelance agent working for the British Secret Intelligence Service. And without her handler, Bradley (the man who was kidnapped), Bex is in trouble. She doesn't know who of her usual contacts she can trust, and, like it or not, she is going to have to use teenage Kieron to get her out of danger. Before Kieron and Sam know it, they are part of a mission to stop a weapon of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands.... 

Young Bond and James Bond meet Alex Rider and Cherub in this brilliantly written, fast-paced spy action thriller. All credibly delivered from somebody who knows all about counterintelligence....  

High-octane action and fast-paced adventure - guaranteed.

Fast paced thriller

Brings the teen spy thriller bang up-to-date with a brilliant technology twist that will definitely appeal to a wide readership, including those who have been hooked in the past by the Young Bond, Cherub and the rest. Andrew Lane is on to another winning series. The narration is first class.
