When Zak Darke’s parents die in an unexplained mass murder he’s left alone in the world. That is until he’s sought out by a mysterious man: “I work for a government agency,” the man tells him. “You don’t need to know which one. Not yet.

Zak becomes Agent 21. What happened to the 20 agents before him he’ll never know. What he does know is that his life is about to change forever.

perfect to read during a long journey, easy and fun! look forward to the next chapter of agent 21 adventures.
