I thought this book was pretty good except everything in this series is becoming repetitive. I'm not sure if I really want to read the next book because this one wasn't all that different than the previous books.

Shelves: action, ya
More danger and deception for Jimmy. The action, always fast-paced, moves into another gear. Excellent plot yet again.

This is a decent YA adventure type novel; I started reading the series after I'd finished the Alex Rider books. This series isn't as dark nor as deep, but it's fun.

This book had a really good adventure with some unexpected outcomes. This 4th book in the series is the best so far.

I received a free digital copy for review.

11-year-old Jimmy's adventure saga continues. He has amazing adventures similar to the "Mission Impossible" movie series. The action is non-stop throughout the book. I still think this series would be exciting for the audience of perhaps 12-18. The lines between good and evil continue to be black and white. The dystopian "Neo-Democratic" Britain's leaders and supporters are power-greedy and without conscience.

I would be interested to see what this author
