Children's LiteratureDanny Watts, who wants nothing better than to join the army, finds his dreams shattered. Not by anything he has done, but because his grandfather Fergus, who Danny never met, betrayed his country and his regiment. Furious, Danny decides to track down his grandfather and turn him in. However, Fergus was a member of the elite Special Air Service, trained to evade capture. With the help of his computer savvy friend Elena, however, Danny manages to finally make contact with his grandfather. Fergus, however, maintains that he is innocent and that Danny was set up to lead people to Fergus. Can Danny, Fergus, Elena, and Elena's money-hungry father manage to help Fergus escape? While some of the plot elements seem far-fetched and too convenient—such as an SAS member keeping such an easy-to-crack password for his phone—the overall story is engaging and certainly entertaining. 2005, G.P. Putnam's Sons, Ages 10 up.
