Description

The second title in this thrilling new crime series that puts young people at the heart of the action. Strong characters, believable dialogue, authentic locations and compelling plots delivering maximum excitement for the young adult market. Danny, Maddie and Alex are trainee special agents with Police Investigation Command. When they're briefed on an 'ice-cream war' at first they think it's some kind of joke. But when they hear that thugs and enforcers are moving in on legitimate licence-holders of ice cream and hot dog vans and that traders are being beaten up and even murdered, they know that there's danger on the streets...and that's before they know the Mafia are involved. Link this with visiting politicians and royalty attending a performance at the Royal Albert Hall, plus the kidnapping of a young and beautiful opera singer...it's no surprise that the three teenage agents have a major protection job on their hands. They may be teenagers, but these special agents can sneak into situations where their youth will allow them to go unobserved...and Scotland Yard knows that that's the only way to crack the crime.Danny, Maddie and Alex are trainee special agents with Police Investigation Command.
