Praise for Jimmy Coates: Revenge
"Boys love this stuff, and so do girls. Jimmy is a pint-sized verision of Robocop or Terminator… Like Anthony Horowitz's splendid fantasies, [these novels] tap into almost everything a bolshy boy wants and feels. Immensely clever, immediately engaging, they will prepare a child for Orwell and Huxley." Amanda Craig, The Times
"Fast-paced and intelligently written." The Bookseller
"the sort of book to wow reluctant boy readers away from computer games and into the pages of a book." Books for Keeps
"Joe Craig has produced another thrilling page-turner." Jewish Chronicle
"A rollicking good spy romp." School House magazine.
Praise for Jimmy Coates: Target
"With cinematic skill, Craig unrolls a series of action-packed scenes, with a new crisis at every turn of the page. It's gripping, but not mindless” Angela Kilverstein
Praise for Jimmy Coates: Killer
“…a totally excellent adventure – a lit bit Bond, a lit bit Matrix and a lot of what you’ve never read before. Someone make this into a movie!” Flipside
“A gripping action-thriller that’s packed with twists.” Funday Times
“The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum.” VOYA

The pace is fast with some great action sequences, but not at the expense of a soundly plotted storyline. The development of the plot is one of the key strengths of the book; it is very well handled and the revelations enhance the story line brilliantly. At times intense but never less than gripping, this is a fantastic book for all ages, not just the YA category.
We learn more about the world around and in NJ7 as Jimmy learns that there are many shades of grey and that the road to damnation can be pathed with good intentions.
After reading I found myself asking the question "what evil acts will you do for the greater good?"
A great read that lets you ask important questions about what it is to be human.
