"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
