Stone Junction

As books go this is one joy dropping ride straight from page one. Following the mysterious death of his mother, Daniel Pearse is thrown straight into the ranks of the super secret AMO. There he learns to pick locks, smuggle, the art of disguise and finally to manipulate his body at a sub-atomic level. Golly, it has all the hallmarks of being some awful cheesy fantasy romp. But fret not, Jim Dodge is a great writer. Every paragraph is tuned to a steady rhythm and there's real substance to the book's ideas.

If I have one complaint, it was too easy to read quickly. And it's not like Jim's written a whole load of books to get lost in.
