Goldstrike: A Thriller (Paperback)
Teenage computer hacker Carl Hobbes may have managed to break out of Camp Twilight, the most secure military prison in the northern hemisphere, in Icecore, but the troubles are not over for him in this high-octane sequel. Carl has managed to stay a step ahead of the CIA with Beth, his mysterious and reluctant partner in crime. However, the CIA inches closer with each passing day, and with a no-holds-barred assassin (or two) following their trail, Carl and Beth had better learn to run even faster.
Back in his home turf of London, Carl takes a job as night guard of a high security warehouse housing priceless artifacts and jewels. To Carl, however, the most valuable item housed in the facility is Cleopatra, state-of-the-art super computer extraordinaire. Carl knows if it protects the most priceless works of art, it can certainly protect two fugitives on the run. But is the machine strong enough to outwit both the CIA and Al-Qaeda?
Carl Hobbes is back an an even bigger, more fast-paced adventure from British superstar Matt Whyman. Basically 24 for teens, it's another book that should find a rabid audience with the same audience who made Anthony Horowitz and James Patterson's teen spy novels massive hits.
