Pupils and staff at HIVE are horrified to discover that Dr Nero has been captured by the forces of HOPE, the Hostile Operative Prosecution Executive, the world’s newest and most ruthlessly efficient security force.
Three months pass without any news of his fate, and Number One has decided to appoint a sinister new headmistress for the school, somebody that the pupils and staff had thought that they’d seen the last of.
Meanwhile Otto is also struggling to cope with new abilities that are starting to manifest themselves; can he really be unconsciously interfacing with computers without physical contact? And if he is, what exactly do these new powers really mean? The only way to find Nero and the truth behind the lies is to escape HIVE.
Otto must get out, and take the risks which come with being a rogue agent. Then he just has to break into MI6. About the Author.
Mark Walden spent ten years producing video games for a living before finally deciding that perhaps it was time to do some real work. With the bitter taste of rejection from the NASA astronaut training programme still in his mouth he decided (luckily) that maybe he should try and write a book instead. He is happily married (as is his wife, he hopes) and is the proud father of Megan. He is owned by Marge, his cat, who has provided invaluable assistance at every stage of the writing of both books.
