Overview

Noa Torsen is on the run. After outsmarting the sinister corporation behind Project Persephone, Noa and her friend Zeke move stealthily across the country, rescuing runaways who are targeted to become test subjects. Noa knows all too well what happens on the Project's operating tables: She still bears the scars. And she's determined to keep the Project from using other teens as guinea pigs.

Back in Boston, Peter anxiously follows Noa's movements from his computer, using his hacker skills to feed her the information she needs to stay alive. But he's desperate to do something more to help. Especially when he learns what Project Persephone has done to his ex-girlfriend, Amanda.

Then, in an explosive confrontation, Noa and her team are trapped in the one place they thought was safe. It will take everything Noa and Peter have to bring down the Project before it gets them first. And with no one to trust and enemies hiding at every turn, they may be the only people alive who can.

This jaw-dropping second book in the Don't Turn Around trilogy raises the stakes to their absolute limit and will leave readers begging for the exciting conclusion.

Hackers Noa and Peter step up their undercover battles against pharmaceutical giant Pike & Dolan as danger escalates for them both (Don't Turn Around, 2012). Pike & Dolan continue Project Persephone, their secret and deadly research ostensibly to end the PEMA epidemic striking teens across the country, despite having one of their labs exposed to the authorities by the teens. Peter has stayed with his parents in Boston even after discovering their involvement with P&D, while Noa has joined the Southwest-based Persefone's Army, made up of freed subjects of P&D's labs working to liberate others before they're killed. Peter helps Noa via a secret chat group online while worrying that his ex-girlfriend Amanda might have contracted the always-fatal PEMA. Noa deals with internal problems within the army as she plans their next mission. In an attempt to find the new servers for P&D's main computers, Peter increases his surveillance of Mason, a ruthless P&D agent, only to be drawn into Mason's plotting; meanwhile, Noa grows suspicious of new recruits to her cause. Gagnon's second in the Don't Turn Around trilogy inches the tale forward with a few thrills concentrated at the volume's close, but she spends far too much time examining from every side the various love triangles and quadrangles among its characters. Here's hoping the finale will be a return to the thrills and surprises of the first installment and not more love among the hackers. Worth it to get fans from here to there; not of much interest as a stand-alone. (Thriller. 12-16)
