Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jake isn't sorry to be suspended from school for 6 weeks. It means he can go home to Burkina Faso, where his parents live and where he's never bored. This visit is particularly eventful; Jake and his sister, Kas, are abducted from a diplomatic banquet and find themselves in the ruthless hands of a man who identifies himself as Yakuuba Sor. However, the real Sor, known locally as The Chameleon, is busy helping poor farmers escape government injustice, and the kidnappers have been hired to make Sor the target of a life-and-death manhunt. Disguise and concealment, mad dashes on horseback and motorbike, cold-blooded murder, "insects" carrying sophisticated tracking equipment, and laser-led missiles aimed at Sor's training camp turn up in this suspenseful adventure that challenges Jake, Kas, and Jake's versatile, high-tech phone to do their very best and survive.

Synopsis:

WHEN AN ASSASSIN bursts from the shadows to try to kill him on the dark, windswept grounds of his boarding school in England, Max Gordon realizes his life is about to change forever.

After learning that his explorer father is missing, Max is determined to find him, no matter what dangers may lay in his path. A secret clue his father left behind leads Max to the inhospitable wilderness of Namibia, where he soon discovers a potentially massive ecological disaster masterminded by Shaka Chang, a very powerful and completely ruthless man—a man Max fears may have put his father in mortal danger. Max needs all the help he can get. Because whoever is behind his fathers disappearance is determined to get rid of Max, too. For good.

From the Hardcover edition.
