My second foray into Higgin's young adult arena...so-so...not going to continue in this Higgin's area
Robbie
After reading Sure Fire from Jack Higgins, I'd have to say that this book was better than the first. Again, Higgins who wrote "The Eagle has Landed" crosses into the young adult market with the help of Justin Richards to create a fast paced teen action novel.

Again we follow Rich and Jade the twins who have finally settled down with their dad after all the spy action. But of course, sooner than expected both are launched back in when unfinished business from the last dangerous encounter reaches t

Jade and Rich are on vacation with their father, a known spy for MI5, when they run into a mysterious group in Italy with possible mafia connections. As Jade and Rich start school the same group of people turn up and then Rich is kidnapped from their school.
As Jade and their father mount a rescue operation, someone highup in MI5 is exposed as a double agent. Lots of explosions and gunfire and action.

Fans of the Andy McNabb or Alex Rider series will enjoy this light yet fun read.

Jack Higgins was for the longest time my favourite author.

This book was one of a couple he collaberated on for the young adult crowd. I gave this one to my teenage son in hopes of getting him hooked on Higgins just like dad.

Being Higgins i of course had to read it.

It is what it is, ok at best, prefaced with the sentament that i had started to turn away from higgins at the time i read this one.

Good for the young adult but not a great Higgins effort
Lauren Hutkin
I really enjoyed this book as well. It is similar to Sharp Shot as it is a book that is very hard to put down because every chapter ends with a cliff hanger. It's a really good book to read if you are looking for something that is entertaining and fun to read.
T.M. Carper
A lite YA novel that's good for younger teens or those who like their books short. A watered-down thriller featuring a set of twins and their spy father.



Mostly dialogue and action, little description. Decent.
Trevor Valdez
I liked it. It was about two kids and their father are in a conflict with a brittish spy and they are doing very dangerous things throughout the book.
Tricia
Very enjoyable story about teen twins in over the top, impossible situations, but definitely very fun to read.
Bibliom
It was pretty good. Not as good as a full blown Higgins. It's a good intro Higgins book, well written with a good plot.
Joleen
This series is full action and keeps you going from the first. It is great for kids who really don't like to read.
Rich
See my review of Sure Fire. If Higgins and Richards want to make more of this series, it's fine by me.
Hazel Roberts
PLENTY OF ACTION I KNOW I'M AT LEAST 50 YEARS OLDER THAN INTENDED AUDIENCE BUT WHAT THE HECK
Omg-books-are-my-thing!
It was good but not as good as the first one. It was kind of slow.
Al Cormier
A very good story. Action packed from the beginning.
Hannah
Much like the first book: lots of action and plots.
