After reading this book, I can honestly say that this one is by my favourite in the series so far. It was so action-packed and completely nail-biting that I could not put it down, no matter how I tried, I kept coming back to it every 5 minutes to pick up where I left off. Which is why I finished it within a day!
By now you get all the things that you have come to expect from the series, suspense, mystery, thrilling adventures that lead you to an intense action-packed atmosphere. Yet this one feels that much more intense as the characters seem a little more developed and as a result older than the last two books, especially in terms of Zak. While Zak is only a year older than the previous book, he seems to have grown a lot more in his training. Not to mention you as a reader are learning tricks along with Zak as he learns them, which I thought made it more exciting and interesting because who wouldn't wanna learn about secret spy stuff?
All in all, there was not a lot I could find wrong with this book. It held up to it's expectations of the series, with it being completely gripping and unable to put down from the get go. It really excelled in it's genre because not only are you reading about espionage tricks you get the chance to learn them yourself. The characters were still strong and constantly developing, which makes it exciting to find out what they will be like in the fourth book. Once again encouraging you to continue with the series as they other books have always excelled in.
The story though continues on from book two, (obviously haha) Zak is back on st peters crag and is learning more skills, this time it is writing and breaking codes, hence the title. Theres a explosion in the london underground that gets the attention of Michael and he sends Zak and his guardian angels to go and break a young computer hacking genius out of a insane assylum and to use him to help figure out what is going on. It gets a bit interesting there.
Then, Involving codes hidden in crossword puzzles they try and stop second and third bombing attempts throughout London. Between the second and third bombings Zak is send undercover to the newspaper that sent out the crosswords, to try and spy on one of the staff. Its a bit of; "its not who you think it is" there.
A few twists and turns and mildly tense moments later, something happens to Raf, Gabs and Michael, then the book comes to a plausible, but not riveting end. Except Agent 21's mortal enemy makes an appearance right at the last, which helps the book come over the line to a more interesting finish.
So overall this book gets better nearer the end and hopefully has set up a fourth book that will be: tense, exciting, gripping, attention grabbing and that much better than this mildly good third book. i recommend this book as the stepping stone to the fourth book, so yeah read it, it is good.
I hope this review was of use.
Ps. I would recommend this book for 10-16 yr olds :-)
Gripping, full of adventure. This one find Agent 21 and his two handlers nearly killed several times hunting down a bomber intending to kill to redeem his brother, a bomb disposal expert who was killed in action diffusing a bomb having been ordered to do so by his superior.
If you like James bond you will love this series. Highly recommended.
From page one your into his adventure and cant put the book down,this follows on from the previous adventures of agent 21 and can only lead to another from chris,surely.
