"Probably the best YA novel of the year."
5 stars"

Agent Six of Hearts, a teen superhero in a nightmarish future, is searching for the last nuclear warhead in existence – but what he finds is something far worse.

Jack Heath's fourth book is easily his best so far. It has the outrageous action stunts to which his fans have become addicted, rock-solid characters that every reader will care about, and tasteful touches of social criticism, most notably of corporate attitudes to the environment and parental enforcement of religion.

Heath has made the story suitable for young readers without sacrificing complexity or intensity – a challenge too many YA authors fail. With its constantly twisting plot (and a finale that will freeze the blood in your veins) anyone older than ten will love Third Transmission, both voracious readers and reluctant ones. If you're looking for a book to tempt your son or daughter away from the computer, this is it.

My only complaint is that it didn't last longer. Surely the author could have wrung a few more scenes out of this story – but it's not a fault worth taking off a star for.


Six of Hearts is sealed inside a torpedo, blasting his way at 300 km an hour towards a warship. His mission: to steal canisters containing a weaponised strain of the SARS virus. If he fails, ChaoSonic will use the virus to wipe out an uprising that is tearing the City apart. And that is the least of Six's problems. Vanish is still on the loose. So is Retuni Lerke. And a scientist has designed a new weapon - one more dangerous than anything Six has ever seen before. One that could destroy him, the Deck, and anyone else who dares to oppose ChaoSonic. Six has to find the weapon and eliminate the threat it poses because ChaoSonic can't always control their creations. He is living proof of that.
