An eleven-year-old boy discovers he has strange powers, and a future that holds mystery, adventure - and death!

Bending his knees, Jimmy let go of the windowsill and slowly tipped backwards. Surely this is impossible, he thought, even as he could feel himself doing it. He pushed out with his legs and the thrust sent him flying backwards into the air... Then his fingers locked on to the cold wire of the fence, poised in a perfect handstand on the top.

Who are the mysterious men chasing Jimmy across the city?
Why are they after him?
What are Jimmy's parents keeping from him and who can he trust?
And how come he can suddenly do all this really cool stuff...?

Find out in this electrifying debut novel from Joe Craig. Young, multitalented and brimming with ideas, this new HarperCollins author is destined to become a firm favourite with children everywhere.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Revenge

"Boys love this stuff, and so do girls. Jimmy is a pint-sized verision of Robocop or Terminator... Like Anthony Horowitz's splendid fantasies, [these novels] tap into almost everything a bolshy boy wants and feels. Immensely clever, immediately engaging, they will prepare a child for Orwell and Huxley." Amanda Craig, The Times

"Fast-paced and intelligently written." The Bookseller

"the sort of book to wow reluctant boy readers away from computer games and into the pages of a book." Books for Keeps

"Joe Craig has produced another thrilling page-turner." Jewish Chronicle

"A rollicking good spy romp." School House magazine.

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Target

"With cinematic skill, Craig unrolls a series of action-packed scenes, with a new crisis at every turn of the page. It's gripping, but not mindless" Angela Kilverstein

Praise for Jimmy Coates: Killer

"...a totally excellent adventure - a lit bit Bond, a lit bit Matrix and a lot of what you've never read before. Someone make this into a movie!" Flipside

"A gripping action-thriller that's packed with twists." Funday Times

"The perfect primer to the Bourne series by Robert Ludlum." VOYA
