Review: Eoin Colfer continues to amaze his readers as he puts the persona of a criminal mastermind into an adolescent boy. He also gives the mastermind an awesome bodyguard who can take on anything or anyone. His choice of words is great and pulls the reader into the story page after page.

Review: David Baldacci somehow finds a way to keep two stories of two sets of people running side by side and then manages to merge both of them without making anything boring.

Summary: When military veteran John Puller discovers that his aunt has died of some disease, he suspects foul play. With evidence in the form of a letter, he arrives in Paradise Bay to find the truth. He soon finds that many other mysterious things are going on there. He, along with police officer Cheryl Landry, tries to continue his mission but soon finds himself in the midst of an even bigger plot that was uncovered by his aunt. He soon gets help from one star military general Carson and together they find allies in undercover officer Diaz and Bulgarian worker Mecho. They soon suspect they have a traitor in their midst and find that they are up against Lampart and Steven Rojas. Finally, with a lot of teamwork and selflessness, they stop Lampart’s slavery programmes and Mecho gets his revenge in the true Bulgarian manner.
