This book is completely action packed!
The action begins with the six protagonists chilling out after school when they witness to their horror the abduction of Iago's father (Iago is one of the main characters). It is quickly established that this is a case of mistaken identity and the abductors were actually after Iago's uncle, a scientist working on the Large Hadron Collider project. The abduction has been orchestrated by a maverick scientist in a bid to conduct her own unethical experiments in the LHC. The action quickly moves across the channel to Switzerland, where the team split up: Cam pursues leads to Iago's father, following some teasing Byronic clues, whilst Iago and Charlie break into CERN in search of a fail safe device planted by Iago's uncle,and Renny sets up technical base camp on the outside (CTU style).
There's some very imaginative use of mobiles, plus a lot of edge of seat action which doesn't let up until the last page. What also makes this book stand out is the real setting of CERN - who wouldn't want to run around inside there trying to save the world?
