In the nonstop sequel to Jimmy Coates: Assassin? Jimmy is still being hunted by NJ7. He escaped from them once, but the government agency that created him won't let their eleven-year-old superassassin go. NJ7 want him working for them, or they want him dead.

Jimmy knows he'll never be a normal kid again. Too much has happened already. He struggles with the knowledge that he is only 38 percent human and created to kill. He is determined that if he can't be normal, at least he won't become a killer.

But someone from Jimmy's past —someone who can run, jump, and fight like Jimmy—is coming for him. And this teenage assassin doesn't share Jimmy's aversion to killing.

Review:

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Revenge "Boys love this stuff, and so do girls. Jimmy is a pint-sized verision of Robocop or Terminator... Like Anthony Horowitz's splendid fantasies, [these novels] tap into almost everything a bolshy boy wants and feels. Immensely clever, immediately engaging, they will prepare a child for Orwell and Huxley." Amanda Craig, The Times "Fast-paced and intelligently written." The Bookseller "the sort of book to wow reluctant boy readers away from computer games and into the pages of a book." Books for Keeps "Joe Craig has produced another thrilling page-turner." Jewish Chronicle "A rollicking good spy romp." School House magazine. Praise for Jimmy Coates: Target "With cinematic skill, Craig unrolls a series of action-packed scenes, with a new crisis at every turn of the page. It's gripping, but not mindless" Angela Kilverstein Praise for Jimmy Coates: Killer "...a totally excellent adventure - a lit bit Bond, a lit bit Matrix and a lot of what you've never read before. Someone make this into a movie!" Flipside "A gripping action-thriller that's packed with twists." Funday Times "The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum." VOYA
