I thought the book Sharp Shot was an action packed thriller that was sort of hard to put down. I could relate to the main characters Jade and Rich really well because they were kids in the story just like me. Jade and Rich are twins and they sort of get tricked into helping out a person their dad used to work with. However, that person turns out to be a phony. McCain who they think is their dad's friend is being followed, chased, shot at for some unknown reason to Jade and Rich and the twins are ...more
I read the book Sharp Shot and it was by Jack Higgins. It was about Jade, Rich, and their father. Their dad is a military operative and a national criminal poses to be a old partner of their dad looking for help. The criminal kidnaps Jade, and Jade's father makes a trade with an old statue. The Father doesn't know that inside the statue is a very critical element that is needed to build a nuclear bomb. Now not only are they in danger but the fate of humanity as well.I thought this book was very ...more
The books Jack HIggins has co-authored with Justin Richards for the Young Adult market have, in many respects, been some of the best work he's done in years. Mainly because he's doing the outlines and leaving the writing to Richards, who brings excitement and freshness.

In this one, the twins--Jade and Rich--find themselves chased through an amusement park, with Rich getting away and Jade being kidnapped. A switch from the previous book--Death Run.

Higgins and Richards are using solid current ev
Looking for an adventure novel with action, suspense, criminals, and heroes? Then Sharp Shot, the third book about the Chance twins, by Jack Higgins with Justin Richards is the book for you.

Sharp Shot is 2nd in this series, which, when I've missed the first, is frustrating....however, it was a fun adventurous ride nonetheless......I think I will give this to all the kids who want shoot'em up thrill's perfect for that reader (especially ones who aren't too critical of thin plot lines) =)

This is a great book. When I was reading this book I couldn't take my eyes off the page and when I was forced away from it I couldn't wait to get home so I could read more. Once I finished the book I was actually sad that there wasn't more of the book to read. I'm usually not desperate to read a book, but this book made me crave reading. I would recommend this book to someone who likes action/comedy books.

I thought it was and awesome book. It takes a REALLY good book to get me to read it in under a year! There where some confusing parts like near the beginning where the book kept switching from Rich to Jade and "Ferdy McCain" in the Theme Park chase. Other wise, it was an easy read.
Two teenage twins escaping from the impossible, fighting bad guys and nearly getting killed by a atomic bomb, who would want more? It's a very action filled and enjoyable book but not to be read before the others in the series.
A good book. I think co-author Justin Richards probably did most of the writing but the story line is very much Higgins.
i think the book gets more interesting as i read it. It also explains the the specific details in order.
Its a pretty good light read. Nothing to serious but still entertaining.
very good back and should be read for action and adventure
Action packed and an awesome adventure.
