Description of this Book

A groovy spy thriller and coming-of-age tale set in the Go-go days of the 1960s, done in a chic, retro style sure to charm readers. For 15-year old Antoine, the summer of 1967 will prove to be an unforgettable one full of new discoveries: a secret agent from nowhere, a mysterious troubled girl, and the disappearance of his father--all happening within two days! These events and more conspire to turn his life upside down and into something he could never have imagined. The creators of Atomic Empire turn their vintage-inspired style to the spy-thriller genre that harkens back to a time when James Bond was the biggest action-hero in the world.
