KIRKUS REVIEW

Seventeen-year-old Adam travels to Jamaica, home of legendary James Bond author Ian Fleming, to investigate a real-life spy mystery involving his grandfather.

After finding a cache of incriminating objects hidden in their grandfather’s cabin, Adam and his six cousins divvy up the task of following the mysterious leads. Adam, armed with an envelope with a Jamaican return address and a Walther PPK pistol, visits a man who he initially is convinced is his grandfather raised from the dead. But the doppelganger, who insists everyone call him Mr. Know, wants Adam dead. Following classic James Bond tradition, the villain has Adam locked in a steel room with walls that literally start closing in on him. Thankfully, Mr. Know’s beautiful ward, Angel, helps him escape. The two begin a wild chase for the truth while attempting to evade the ruthless killers. Posh hotels, buried treasure, dangerous secrets and uncertain alliances all add up to a rip-roaring mystery. Adam, who fancies himself something of a Daniel Craig Bond, is both a dangerous opponent and a conflicted hero. While this fast-paced romantic mystery is a volume in a seven-piece set, it clearly shines in its own right.

A romantic spy thriller with a heart. (Mystery. 10-14)
