codebreakerZac Darke is a 15 year old spy and counter-terrorist. Dealing with a bomber who strikes randomly in London you can see where the inspiration comes from. Zac has to unravel the code that will tell him where the bomber will strike next, the one person who could help is shot and in a coma.

Third in the series but you don’t have to have read the others. This series is a darker version of Cherubs by Muchamore, and similar to the Alex Rider series by Horowitz, where a teenager is recruited by the government because terrorists wouldn’t consider a teenager to be a spy.

The deaths of people on the London Underground and elsewhere, are quite graphic and I would certainly make a note of this before recommending it to any reader.
