Pretty good

I though it was an amazing book, until the ending. SPOILER ALERT It turns out it was all a game and the boy was never a spy. However, it is suitable for 9 and up. There is two or three mentionings of the ‘Mr X’ having a hacksaw in his apartment to chop people up, but it is explained that the boy got that from a film. The boy has a great relationship with his Das, and it explains that his Mum is ill in hospital.
