What did you like about the book? Move over Alex Rider. There’s a new kid in town. Ryan Quinn is surprised when his dad disappears and his mom is suddenly kidnapped right in front of him. He just wants to be a normal kid in New York, but his life is thrown into a whirlwind of torturous dark secrets, Myat Kaw confusion, and is plunged deep into an adventure to save his parents. A smart fun book that will be tough to put down for amateur sleuths.
