William King and Blake Watt have just settled into their senior year of high school when they receive a call for help—the authorities need to use their computer skills to track down a father who has failed to make child-support payments. The invitation to become cyber bounty hunters is so tempting, they don’t stop to ask why they were chosen for this assignment.
As they learn more about the man they are searching for, they discover the true nature of their mission—to help the founder of a Seattle-based software company prove that he is innocent of a much different charge. But the scariest things they learn are why they were chosen and why they were supposed to remain in the background.
You’ll love following the surprising twists and turns in this fast-paced young-adult thriller from a gifted storyteller who has nearly three million books in print.
This is a fast-paced young adult book. I didn't realize it was the second in a series, but I assume reading the first book would clear up some of the confusion I had. This book centers around King. I really grew to like him and the other characters in the book and loved the pacing through the story.
These boys have been asked to work for the CIA doing cyber bounty hunting (I didn't even know that was a thing!). There are twists and turns and uncertainty about who to trust or even who is good and who is bad! The three boys that are at the center of everything really do keep you entertained and rooting for them.
It was a 4/5 for me. I think I would have rated it a 5/5 if I had read the first book in the series.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
