When Adam Murphy learns that his late, revered grandfather, David McLean, hid a huge stash of foreign cash and fake passports in the family’s cottage, he is stunned. Was Grandpa really a traitor, as some of the evidence suggests? And why was a loaded Walther PPK pistol hidden at the cottage? Determined to prove his grandfather’s innocence, Adam takes the famous James Bond gun and follows the clues to Bermuda, where he encounters danger, evidence of espionage, and an unusual girl named Angel Dahl. Desperate and on the run with Angel, pursued by a deadly operative, Adam races to other exotic locations, unsure if Angel is friend or foe, or if his grandfather was a hero or a villain. Three clues hold the dark secret of David McLean’s past—the letter W, a glass eye with a golden iris, and the haunting words of someone named Mr. Know.
Double You is the sequel to both Separated, part of The Seven Prequels and Last Message, part of Seven (The Series).
CM Magazine - September 5, 2014
"Teen readers who know and love the James Bond stories and movies will enjoy the novel and find many similarities and intricacies linking back to Fleming’s work within the storyline...As with 'Seven The Series,' readers who are fond of action and adventure series like Alex Rider, Maximum Ride, or C.H.E.R.U.B. will find something to like in these novels."
School Library Journal - September 1, 2014
"This thrill-a-minute series will hook reluctant readers as well as fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne."
Kirkus Reviews - August 15, 2014
"Posh hotels, buried treasure, dangerous secrets and uncertain alliances all add up to a rip-roaring mystery. Adam, who fancies himself something of a Daniel Craig Bond, is both a dangerous opponent and a conflicted hero. While this fast-paced romantic mystery is a volume in a seven-piece set, it clearly shines in its own right. A romantic spy thriller with a heart."
