Editorial Reviews

Review

"Zeke Bartholomew Superspy is a joyful, fun ride that pre-teens, teens, and even adults will certainly enjoy." - Midwest Book Reviews

"Zeke Bartholomew always wanted to be a spy. Instead, he is just a dorky middle school kid with one smart, but shy friend, Kyle. When new neighbors move in next door, Zeke is convinced they are spies. Determined to find evidence of his neighbor's secret life, Zeke goes through their garbage can and finds nothing, but an old pair of sunglasses. His dream of being a spy turns into a nightmare when he puts on the sunglasses and is mistaken for his neighbor, Derek Lance.

A wet escape from his kidnapper sand a fiery attempt at his life leads Zeke to an albino hulk intent on killing him. Zeke also meet a girl names Sparrow who happens to be a spy for SNURP, The Strategic National Rennaisance Project. Together they have to find Mr. Le Carre, the mastermind behind an evil scheme to rule the world with sound waves embedded in a music video.


During their escape and quest to stop the evil thugs, Zeke leads Sparrow to an underground hideout where he and Kyle keep their cool techno gadgets. It's hard to believe Zeke was ever a thoughtless dork when glimpsing into the hideout and the ingenuity of his inventions. He really seems more like a young James Bond which makes ZEKE BARTHOLOMEW: SUPERSPY a fun spy thriller for ages 11-13. Recommended for older child who enjoys adventure and cool gadgets. A sequel is planned which will give the reader a new adventure with Zeke to look forward to." - Boys and Literacy

"The beginning pulls the reader in and keeps him hooked with action-packed events throughout. The story line had me nervous, sad and excited to see what would happen next." - TIME for Kids

"My take: As you, my loyal readers know, I'm a big fan of Young Adult Fiction. I always have been, ever since I, well, since I WAS a Young Adult. I might have grown up but I still love to read the same stories I read in middle and high school. Good writing transcends the ages anyway - to pigeonhole a story to one age group does it injustice I think, IMHO. Anyway. let me tell you about Zeke Bartholomew, Superspy. This book, if you will excuse the pun, is SUPER fun. To start with, the description on the back ("I caught my dad SCRATCHING HIS BUTT.") made my 9 year old boy laugh out loud (me too!). I quickly dived into the story and was immediately hooked. With current (on the sly) references to other great books and authors (like the awesome Percy Jackson series, Harry Potter and the indelible James Bond), any reader can relate to Zeke Bartholomew and his adventures (and tell me the truth - doesn't that villain on the cover look JUST a bit like the one in Austin Powers? Hmmmm, LOL). It was really fun to ride along with the self described "medium everything" as he discovered his inner spy. I don't want to give anything away here, but suffice to say, this is a series I will be keeping up with. And as soon as my son finishes the book he is reading, he's starting this one next!" - CPA Mom

"Zeke Bartholomew: Superspy! is the promising beginning to a series." - The Kam

About the Author

Jason Pinter is the author of five novels with 1.5 million copies in print in many languages, most of which he cannot read. As a child, he was only slightly less qualified to be a spy than Zeke Bartholomew. You can find him living in New York City buried under a pile of books. This is his first juvenile fiction book.

His books have been published in over a dozen countries in numerous languages and sold hundreds of thousands of copies around the world. At just twenty six years old, Jason was given a three book contract with MIRA Books, which was then extended to seven before his twenty-eighth birthday.

Prior to becoming a full time writer, Jason worked as a book editor for five years at three major publishing houses.

Is it ok to justify something, and then possibly doing something else? Well, when I picked this up, and said over and over again that it was for my daughter, I knew that I'd be the one reading it first. I knew that because I love reading Jason Pinter and his work. The instant "The Mark" hit the shelves, and James Patterson's raving remarks endorsed Jason Pinter, I was interested! And when I read him, I was impressed! So when I saw he was doing a book that featured a Middle School/Jr. High student, I was still interested.

Welcome to Zeke's world!

Actually, his name is Ezekiel J. Bartholomew, but you can call him Zeke. OK? Good! Now that we've got that out of the way, let me tell you what Zeke is NOT. Zeke isn't exactly athletic, he's not really a chick magnet, and he isn't exactly that popular. But he does have a brain, and he knows how to use it. Won't he be surprised when the world is counting on HIM to save The World?!!?

There are constant surprises here and there that enter Zeke's world, and half the time, he really feels as if he's going to puke. But his eye is on the Sparrow, because Sparrow knows all about Zeke and his Dad. Sparrow knows all about Zeke, because SNURP knows all about Zeke. SNURP is Strategic National Underground Reconnaissance Program. WHAT'S GOING ON?!!?

Well, you'll just have to find out, won't you? With names thrown out there like Le Carre, there's a sense of humor to appreciate, along with a great read. Jason Pinter has something to offer for the kids, and I think they'll really enjoy it. It was tons of fun for me, and I hope people take notice of Pinter's innovative mind! Because not only can he write awesome thrillers for me, but he can write them for my kiddo too.
