April 2010 'new gen' Book of the Month title.

This is a thumping, adrenaline-fuelled adventure from the critically acclaimed author of Blood Hunters. Readers will revel in the fast paced plot and the accessibility of the filmic storyline, which will keep you gripped until the climactic end. Kier’s father is dead and the police are hunting him but so are the bad guys. 14 year old Kier soon realises the only help he’s going to get in order to achieve justice, is from himself.

Synopsis

Fightback by Steve Voake

Kier glanced around and decided things didn't look good. He'd put two armed bank robbers on the floor in less than a minute and he hadn't even broken sweat. If word got back to Jackson about this, he'd be furious...His father is dead, the police want to arrest him and the bad guys want to kill him. But fourteen-year old Kier West isn't about to let that stop him. After watching a young girl fight off three attackers on a train, he learns her secret in a Cretan monastery and quickly discovers that the only way to get justice is to go after it himself...

Reviews

'It’s terrific stuff...classily put together and lip-smackingly gory. Had the late Michael Crichton ever written for teens, odds are he’d have come up with something like this’ Financial Times
