Jimmy Coates: Killer

Bending his knees, Jimmy let go of the windowsill and slowly tipped backwards. Surely this is impossible, he thought… He pushed out with his legs and the thrust sent him flying backwards into the air! Then his fingers locked on to the cold wire of the fence, poised in a perfect handstand on the top.

Who are the mysterious men chasing Jimmy across the city? Why are they after him? What are his parents hiding from him? And how come he can suddenly do all this really cool stuff? The answer will chill Jimmy to the bone – and leave him in mortal danger. Genetically engineered to be a lethal killing machine, hunted by Britain’s secret services, his life as an ordinary boy is over. And if he doesn’t run fast enough, everything else will be too.
