He was the perfect assassin. No name. No past. No remorse. Perfect, that is, until he began to ask questions and challenge his orders. Now The Program is worried that their valuable soldier has become a liability.
And so Boy Nobody is given a new mission. A test of sorts. A chance to prove his loyalty.
His objective: Take out Eugene Moore, the owner of an extremist military training camp for teenagers. It sounds like a simple task, but a previous operative couldn’t do it. He lost the mission and is presumed dead. Now Boy Nobody is confident he can finish the job. Quickly.
But when things go awry, Boy Nobody finds himself lost in a mission where nothing is as it seems: not The Program, his allegiances, nor the truth.
The riveting second book in Allen Zadoff’s Boy Nobody series delivers heart-pounding action and a shocking new twist that makes Boy Nobody question everything he has believed.
This one definitely isn’t Spy vs Spy this time. It more like assassin vs anti government nut job!
Boy Nobody it’s back in the latest installment of The Unknown Assassin series known as Daniel this time. But see, Boy Nobody screwed up last mission. I mean really, what teenage boy doesn’t question everything that is told to them. Hell, what teenager doesn’t do that, they all do. It’s like a rite of passage, but as a product of The Program, Boy Nobody should never question his orders. His job is to get in, get out and don’t get caught.
Daniel is put to the test by “Mother” and “Father” to make sure that he is still loyal to the program. It makes you realize what lengths a government program would go to, to ensure absolute cooperation or else you die. Simple really.
His mission this time around it to take out Eugene Moore at a recruiting event. Get in, get out quickly. Do not go into the compound. This mission was already labeled as lost, an agent of the program infiltrated the compound in order to get close to the nutjob, all communication had seized and the agent presumed dead. Since Daniel went inside the compound, The Program basically wrote him off as rogue. Daniel is essentially cut off from the program, everyone disappears. He has no help, no one to call, all decisions are his own. Except he had Howard!
For some reason, Howard is always my favorite part. I can’t get enough of him, and it looks like my wish will come true with the next one! There were some big bombshells dropped in this book, one I saw coming and one I definitely did not. Big things are in-store for Boy Nobody and I’ll definitely be around to see what happens!!
