Adam Parker and the Radioactive Scout is a very fun read. It is a completely enjoyable spin on the kid detective novels many of us grew up on, whether that be the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, or even Cam Jansen added with a little bit of the early seasons of USA's Psych. If you ever wondered what happened to those characters here is your answer - they grow up, grow apart, but there is still a part of them yearning for that sense of adventure.

In this case that sense of adventure reads like a Spielber

Adam Parker and the Radioactive Scout is tempting for any adult who grew up on a steady diet of Nancy Drew, The Hardy Boys, and also Scooby Doo and especially Encyclopedia Brown. The book is infused with Michael Field’s affection for the kid detective genre. The concept is great, but the delivery left me wishing for something different.

What a great read! Mike’s first book hits all the marks – great characters, exciting story and action movies! What more could you want?! Adam Parker is like Encyclopedia Brown all grown up – replete with failed romances, enduring friendships and terrorist plots. The writing is clear and concise, the story is entertaining, and the characters are varied and real. If you like humor, plot twists, and the movies, then this is the book for you. I can’t wait for the next one!
