Ryan Quinn and the Rebel's Escape
Ryan is blindsided when his father disappears and his mother is abducted. Left with nothing but questions, he soon discovers his parents have been leading a double life. They actually work with the Emergency Rescue Committee, an underground organization that has performed dangerous rescue missions since World War II, and they’ve been secretly training Ryan to follow in their footsteps.
With his parents’ lives in the balance and more at stake than he knows, Ryan dives into a mission of international intrigue that sends him around the globe. To survive, he must trust his training and perform his own daring rescue mission in a thrilling race for freedom.
Sensitive readers should be aware that there's a fairly high body count, but it's not too gruesome. While most of the technical aspects of traveling alone were explained adequately, I couldn't quite believe that Ryan's cell phone worked in Andakar!
For readers who have read all of Horowitz, David Gilman, Charlie Higson and Ali Carter, this is a really worthy entry into the world of middle grade spy adventures. I will definitely be looking forward to the next one!
