Product description

Review

"Readers who loved "Evil Genius" will find this sequel as gripping, devilish and wonderfully dark as its predecessor. What made that first book so good was the author's delivery of a complex, layered protagonist in the young Cadel Piggot and the world of criminal masterminds in which he lives and learns, a world he eventually destroys. From these ashes rises another imaginative and just slightly less villainous cast of characters, the Genius Squad of the title, to tempt Cadel's vulnerable conscience." (starred review)

"Computer prodigy Cadel's belief that he's escaped the clutches of his nemesis/supposed father Prosper English proves sadly mistaken in this pulse-pounding sequel to Evil Genius (2007). . . . Cadel makes an uncommonly memorable protagonist." Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
