CRYPT. Headline, 2012. ISBN: 978 0 7553 7822 7.
Strange things are happening in York and London. They're emerging from the shadows and are after something. A voice that seems to becoming from the darkness is being listened too by one man. This is not case for any normal group of counter-intelligence to investigate. This is a case for CRYPT; a group of cunning teenage agents who use their extra sensory perception and high-tech gadgets to investigate crimes that the police cannot solve. CRYPT will need to keep their wits about them to survive, for what's in the shadows want them out of their way.
I loved this book! It shows the reasons to be afraid of the shadows but also the wonders they hide - which I love. The characters are amusing and - despite their age - are strong-minded and wilful. Bex and Jud are my favourite agents and their friendship is amazing to read. The dark corners always held something and were in great detail. Each page held something of importance and was easy to follow. The changes of scenes in the book did not make it confusing but kept it all tied together. It was a page turner to say the least.
