Each Jimmy Coates book is a self-contained thriller, so you can read them in any order, but if you DO read them in order there is of course a story arc than runs through the series. They’re for anyone aged about 9 and over.

My latest series is World of Robots - four short books, each one taking the reading level on slightly, to help build up reading ability and confidence. They’re mainly for slightly younger readers, around 7 and over.

First in the action-thriller series. “Pure gold” - The Times. “Totally excellent adventure - a bit Bond, a bit Matrix and a lot of what you’ve never read before. Someone make this into a movie!” - Flipside Magazine.
