This is a second Luke Baron title from a successful Finnish writer, so, if this is anything to go by, there is probably an audience waiting for a further action-packed adventure.
It all begins when 14 year-old Luke Baron wants some 18+ identity to get into serious gambling and is unwary enough to get involved in buying a fake driving licence on-line, from a girl named Gemma Dolan. She, as it happens, is the seriously disturbing daughter of a seriously criminal dad who is planning a seriously big crime involving stolen plutonium. Everyone except Luke has at least a zillion agendas and so what follows is an awfully exciting adventure culminating in being dunked in the Irish Sea.
I have read plenty of stuff like this but there’s no denying that this novel is compulsive, quick reading and will definitely give thrill-seeking teen readers value for their money.
