When an ordinary kid learns he’s the heir to a secret agent dynasty, F.A.L.C.O.N puts him on a case to protect a famous rock group and find a missing journalist. Before he knows it, Colt Shore has gone from body guard to rock star to full-fledged agent when he learns that a human trafficking ring plans to kidnap a group of teenage girls. It will take more than his ingenuity and skills and a couple of cool gadgets to protect his new friends and rescue the captured girls before it’s too late.

I could NOT put this book down. I loved every minute of it, and I'm very hopeful that it will turn into a series. :)
Yes, spy books are like bread and butter to me. Well, GOOD spy books, that is. And this one is definitely good.
While I want to tell you every tiny detail, I'm afraid anything I say will ruin the book - and you truly must read it for yourself. However, there are a few things I'm comfortable saying:
* I love the way Mr. Avian lets you know each leading decision by inserting a domino: "Domino five."
* These characters are fantastic. So fleshed-out as to be completely real.
* Um, can anyone say spy gadgets? Is there anything better?
* F.A.L.C.O.N., in general. Specifically, the way they're hidden, and the fact that they're not linked to any specific government.
There's so more more I want to say, but you'll just have to read it to find out why I went all "fan girl" on this book.
