Jack Higgins returns and that can only mean Sean Dillion is also here with yet another cookie cutter adventure. Hold the presses…. This is not a Dillon book, but ‘Death Run’, one of the short lived teen fiction novels that Higgins wrote in conjunction with Justin Richards. In book two, Rich and Jade Chance are together with their agent father John. They think they are on a holiday in Monaco, but for John it is more of a Busman’s Holiday when he is tasked with smuggling out an informant from unde ...more

Ok, this is a Y.A series yes, but boy is it good!!! The books are action packed, quick and easy to get into and I seem to devour them a little too quickly. Luckily I have the next 2 in the series to keep me amused a little longer, so on to the next I go........
This was a very good suspense book to continue the 1st book. This author is very good at giving supens and giving information at different times and sum it all up at the end. It is a very fun and interesting book.

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

This might be classed as a YA or "teen lit" but its just as exciting as a full blown thriller with a sophisticated storyline.
Jade and Rich Chance are once again embroiled in their father's undercover intelligence work.
When a mafia banker switches sides and wants to expose the illicit accounts of his clients the underworld goes crazy and are hot on his tail and so is John Chance to save his life but with a mole in the mix its a "death run."
Another brilliant story in the Chance twins series and I

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

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.

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.

This series is full action and keeps you going from the first. It is great for kids who really don't like to read.

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.

See my review of Sure Fire. If Higgins and Richards want to make more of this series, it's fine by me.

Very enjoyable story about teen twins in over the top, impossible situations, but definitely very fun to read.
It was good but not as good as the first one. It was kind of slow.

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.
