Product Description

Product Description

An action-packed novel which has received exceptional feedback from readers aged 11-15 and is a must-read for fans of Alex Rider.

Mark and his school friends get caught up in a spiral of events that puts them on the personal hit list of an international terrorist during their summer holidays.

When Mark’s Uncle Josh, a commander in MI6 intelligence, has to go into hiding, he turns to 15-year old Mark for help in foiling a huge terror plot.

As Mark and his teen friends become more and more deeply involved in spying on his behalf, their adventure suddenly becomes much more serious, and they realise they are risking their lives for something – but what?

Helped by the cunning and tricks of Uncle Josh, Mark and his team manage to stay one step ahead of the terrorist gang, and eventually they find a vital codename and date, which is a puzzle they know they must solve in order to prevent an imminent terrorist attack.

The countdown is on: but all they know about the unknown is that it will happen on 9th August…

The chase moves from Southampton, to London, and back to Hampshire, in a novel which can also be read in ‘real time’ from July 24th onwards. The summer holidays have never been so exciting!

Author Nigel Argall has worked with young people for over 20 years and has four children, aged 14-20 at the time of publication. This is his first novel, which has already been especially popular with readers of Young Adult action fiction, and also reflects his own love of outdoor activities and flying.

It was originally published in 2009 by Pioneer Teens, an imprint of Fygleaves Publishing, which was established in order to provide opportunities for breakthrough novelists.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good readable debut 7 July 2009
This is a commendable debut from Nigel Argall. The book is aimed at teenagers but does work for an older audience.

The plot is a pacey thriller as four teenagers, aided by heroic Uncle Josh, attempt to thwart a determined terrorist. The book climaxes with a Bond/Bourne type ending leaving you turning pages rapidly to reach the conclusion.

Argall has worked hard at developing the two main central characters and his locations are particularly strong, switching as they do between London, Southampton and a military base. The narrative grows in strength as you move through the book.

Being critical, perhaps one weakness is the mix of the unbelievable and the quite credible. The idea that the intelligence services and the Police would be so relaxed about a major terrorist slipping into the country and remianing unobserved is one that is hard to swallow. There are other strands throughout the book which aren't explained or tied up as well as you would want.

However overall this is well worth a read. It's written with tenacity, imagination and humour and a great debut book.
