KIRKUS REVIEW

The techno-kids from STORM are back, picking up only a few short months after their first caper (STORM: The Infinity Code, 2007). Andrew, the computer whiz, is contacted by Christina, who wants to join the team. But first she needs help to retrieve a priceless heirloom stolen from her home, a crime she witnessed, a crime perpetrated by…a ghost! When a second ghostly theft occurs in Italy, Andrew, explosives expert Gaia and reluctant leader Will rush to the scene, only to find that Christina is missing, presumed to have joined a cult of teens seeking contact with lost loved ones. It’s up to STORM to rescue the girl, solve the crime and save the world from impending doom. Paying homage to James Bond’s Q with gadgets galore—all based on fact, not fiction—this adventure book grabs the reader from page one and doesn’t let up even at the end. There’s clearly a third installment on the way, and it can’t come soon enough. (author’s note, illustrated “Gadget File”) (Thriller. 9-11)
