Publisher Comments:

A spy reveals startling secrets and carries out a breathless mission — in an astonishing guide that takes the 'Ologies to a new level.

The year is 1958, and British spy Spencer Blake, aka Agent K, is on an undercover mission to expose a deadly criminal organization. As he traverses the globe with his American and Soviet cohorts — from Scotland to Berlin to Las Vegas to Cuba — he furtively records his secret techniques in a manual for new recruits.

Once they've primed themselves on the essentials of spy craft, keen-eyed readers will discover that Agent K has been setting them challenges and clues to decipher all along. If they are clever enough to unravel them all, a great reward awaits

Review:

"Move over, Mata Hari: the Ologies take a new direction with this spectacular addition to the series. Maintaining the beloved interactive format, the latest entry poses as a collection of items assembled in 1958 and stored in national archives, now declassified under the 'fifty-year rule.' Agent K, a British spy, is tracking down the evil international Operation Codex, using his mission to ground a training manual for spies. Readers can match wits with Agent K as they pick up clues; absorb lessons in reading body language (too much eye contact might mean that someone is trying too hard to seem sincere), creating instant disguises or following someone; learn about famous spies; and more. Enticing extras include a red-tinted magnifying glass, a 'secret compartment' concealed in the spine and a code-maker/-breaker. Who could resist? Ages 8 — up."
