Fast-paced is certainly the way to describe this thriller/adventure. When Dominic's mother's new invention, the Virtual Interactive Mobile System, goes berserk and knocks her unconscious, Dominic is up against it to try and uncover the saboteur before any further damage is done. This is well up to the high standard of Blackman's other gripping adventures, A N T I D O T E, Hacker and Thief! (9-12 yrs) (Kirkus UK)
