English Summary/英文概要: 16-year-old Ocean Daley needs to get away from school, his seaside town and wasting his summer working for his mother’s irritating boyfriend. When his mysterious Uncle Frank offers him a place at a summer school for a select group of gifted teens, he jumps at it.

But the school isn’t like any other, with classes in hacking, bike racing, psychological tricks and combat. Orca, the secretive organisation behind the school, needs fresh recruits…but for what? Ocean’s father co-founded Orca, and joining the organization feels like a way to honour his memory, as well as strengthen bonds with his strange uncle.

Orca demands each teenager push themselves beyond the possible and in return each student gets an impressive salary, international travel and exhilarating field missions-a double life. There is one catch. Joining Orca is a life-binding commitment to support their ’noble’ cause. For Ocean, it’s the challenge in life he’s been looking for.


Awards/获奖情况: “An enjoyable read and if you liked Charlie Higson’s Young Bond series or indeed "The Maze" or "The Hunger Games" then I do not believe you will be disappointed. The ending certainly sets up the probability of a sequel for which I certainly will look out for.” G Heard (Reviewer)

"This is a fast paced, thrilling novel with an engaging mystery.”Alaa Alkhulaqi (Reviewer)

"A fun, quick read. Interesting premise. Well fleshed out characters. Perfect for younger readers."Netgalley

“Twists and turns along the way made for a great read. Recommended.”Beano’s Fighter

About the Author/作者介绍: Chris grew up in Great Missenden, where the rule is that you must become obsessed with Roald Dahl books as soon as you possibly can. He met Dahl at the tender age of five, who begrudgingly assented to sign a copy of the Giraffe, the Pelly and Me which Chris still treasures to this day. The writing seed planted, it took a long time to germinate with Chris only deciding to write at the age of twenty. Unfortunately he was halfway through a completely unrelated degree at the time. Thus followed seven years of writing procrastination whilst toiling in business.

Eventually, he succumbed to his fate and completed a Masters in Creative Writing at West Dean College (Uni of Sussex) in 2013. He left his job in 2015 to focus entirely on writing and independently published his first novel, a coming of age Victorian tale: Perry Scrimshaw’s Rite of Passage in September 2015. After writing a second novel, he decided that getting an agent might be a good idea and was fortunate to join forces with David Haviland at Andrew Lownie Literary Agency.
