From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up?Jake Carson is a 15-year-old Australian who gets caught up in a web of crime and intrigue. His grandfather made his fortune through computer games, but died under mysterious circumstances. His father suffered a nervous breakdown, also in a suspicious manner. When Jake stumbles upon a computer disk that leads to the exposure of a drug ring, it turns out that his family's misfortunes and the drugs are all tied in with a complex plot for revenge by a former Nazi. The nonstop action, with plenty of twists and turns, may draw some readers, but the novel suffers from contrivances and unengaging characters. Jake himself is fairly wooden, without much personality emerging beyond the basic traits of being a smart, pleasant young man. The book is cluttered by extraneous characters who help him, including the school principal, a kindly policeman and his younger partner, and a teenage agent from the CIA, as well as Jake's father. The Nazi villain is appropriately evil and deranged. His scheme to create a computer game that simulates death leads to the climactic scene in which Jake must battle a mechanical crocodile. Readers who have outgrown "The Hardy Boys Casefiles" and are not yet ready for Robert Ludlum might overlook the flaws, enjoy the action, and await the promised sequel.?Steven Engelfried, West Linn Public Library, OR
