All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

When the Deck begins to investigate the Lab, Six walks a tightrope between his two worlds, trying to keep his origin a secret.

Agent Six works for a clandestine organization trying its best to overthrow a seedy, heartless corporation that has taken over the world. But Agent Six has his own secret: he's a genetically enhanced superhuman. Higher on thrills than character development, this story tracks Six's action-packed adventures in a dystopian future where the main character represents the last hope for freedom.

Gr 6 Up—In a time far into the future in a city isolated from the rest of the world, ChaoSonic controls all of the residents. But, there is one group that refuses to stay under its thumb—the Deck. It has a secret weapon in the fight against the enemy—Agent Six of Hearts. He is like no other human ever seen; in fact, he isn't totally human. Created through insidious and illegal experiments by the Lab, a division of ChaoSonic, he is a clone made up of human DNA, cheetah muscle, bloodhound nose, shark skin, elephant brain, and peregrine bones and eyes. He's the best agent ever to work for the Deck, helping to thwart the organization that created him 16 years earlier. He escaped the Lab when he was a baby and has stayed out of sight ever since. Only his boss, the King of Hearts, knows his secret. Then he is captured by ChaoSonic operatives. Yet, one of them is different from the rest. In Kyntak, Six sees another boy whose past is the same as his own. Can he trust him? Can the experimentation, torture, and cloning at the Lab ever be stopped? Fans of Anthony Horowitz's "Alex Rider" (Philomel) or James Patterson's "Maximum Ride" (Little, Brown) series will be hooked on this novel. An action-packed, suspense-filled story.—Traci Glass, Eugene Public Library, OR
