"You don\'t need to know which one. Not yet. All you need to know is that we\'ve had our eye on you. There\'s a possibility you could help us in certain... operational situations.?Zak becomes ...more
Another in the Zak Darke series of teenage spy novels. Very much on the lines of Alex Rider style novels, it features a teenage boy who is working for the government and undertaking daring missions.
In this particular book, Zak has the task of sneaking on board an enemy ship, finding the requisite information - and then destroying the ship.
Meanwhile back in the UK, his supposed grave has been dug up. Someone clearly suspects that his death was faked. A former girlfriend is horrified to discover the vandalism to his 'grave' and finds herself drawn into the mystery surrounding him - a move which puts her own life in danger.
The action is fast and furious. It is perfect novel for an older child or teenager especially boys. The amount of action is guaranteed to keep their attention as it simply never seems to stop!
