Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review A wonderful and highly enjoyable novel that is a fresh and exciting take on the teenage spy book and an excellent gateway into the world of spy thrillers * The Unseen Library * I thoroughly enjoyed this as, in common with Andrew's other books, it's cleverly plotted with a clear sense of direction. It also draws on current tensions and political situations across the world... The fact that Andrew Lane used to work for the Ministry of Defence gives his writing an extra level of authenticity, especially when describing the numerous high tech gadgets that appear throughout. With the main characters quickly becoming aware that they are in way over their heads, the energy and pace is relentless right through the book * Books for Keeps *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
