His father is missing presumed dead and his mother is serving a twenty-year sentence for his murder, but teenage escapologist Max Cassidy is certain everybody is wrong –
about both things . . . And now, his quest to find the truth has become very dangerous . . .
Max learns that his dad was part of a secret global organisation, the Cedar Alliance. Desperate to find him alive, he seeks help from the other members of the group. But they are scattered across the world – and then they start disappearing one by one . . .
Escapology is dangerous but not nearly as dangerous as real life . . .
Having had problems with the original release the second book picks up and fixes a number of the problems. Its well written, Max is outstanding and the whole overall arc really keeps moving at its own pace as the ups and downs of Max’s search continue to help put his family back together.
All in a well thought out and planned title and one that really did entertain me. Add to this that I’d heartily recommend the series to any young reader with an interest in high adventure and it’s one that will generate more than a few quiet moments on those holidays.
