They told him his uncle died in an accident. He wasn't wearing his seat belt, they said. But when fourteen-year-old Alex finds his uncle's windshield riddled with bullet holes, he knows it was no accident. What he doesn't know yet is that his uncle was killed while on a top-secret mission. But he is about to, and once he does, there is no turning back.
Finding himself in the middle of terrorists, Alex must outsmart the people who want him dead. The government has given him the technology, but only he can provide the courage. Should he fail, every child in England will be murdered in cold blood.

This is a great fiction book filled with alot of action.I recommend this book if you like suspense and adventure. Anthony makes the reader feel as if they are apart of the story. The book starts off with bad news and the protagonist from there creates an even more deeper story by becoming a spy in his teenage years. There are good guys and bad guys in the story which connects real life with this story. This book reminds me of James Bond type of books. The protagonist sets a goal and doesn't stop until he achieves it. If you love to read about top secret agents then this book would be a great read for you.

“Believe me, It would be better if we didn't meet again. Go back to school. Go back to your life. And next time they ask you, say no. Killing is for grown-ups and you're still a child.
