About This Book
A fantastic action/adventure series from a young author with a license to thrill.
Meet sixteen-year-old superhuman: Agent Six of Hearts. He's the strongest, most effective agent in The Deck, a team of special agents fighting to uphold justice in a completely corrupt world.
Six would be invincible...if not for a deadly secret. He is the product of an illegal experiment by the Lab — a ruthless division of the corporation that controls his world. When the Deck begins to investigate the Lab, Six walks a tightrope between his two worlds, trying to keep his origin secret. But then he meets Kynak, a boy whose past equals his own.
As Six's life spirals out of control, he must face his most dangerous mission yet, in this non-stop-action thriller from debut author Jack Heath.
Praise for The Lab
"Even though it was written when the author was in high school, this action-packed page-turner features steady pacing, taut prose, and even a little character development. A strong start; stay tuned for sequels." — Booklist
