spies – post III

This book is so wonderfully crafted as you get into the mind of a young boy who discovers the dangers of playing in an adult world.

Stephen becomes the only one playing the game and in the end he switches sides and becomes the only link with the man at the end of the lanes. As the truth unravels and he recollects the final stages of the game, which end in deadly consequences, the loose ends are tied up.

But there is still room for a twist or two and the experience of reading the book is to ponder on the way that adults often take children for granted as possible witnesses and interpreters of their schemes and plans as well as the dangers of failing to take them seriously.

A review will follow soon…
