Double You

Orca Book Publishers | The Seven Sequels


When Adam Murphy learns that his late, revered grandfather, David McLean, hid a huge stash of foreign cash and fake passports in the family’s cottage, he is stunned. Was Grandpa really a traitor, as some of the evidence suggests? And why was a loaded Walther PPK pistol hidden at the cottage? Determined to prove his grandfather’s innocence, Adam takes the famous James Bond gun and follows the clues to Bermuda, where he encounters danger, evidence of espionage, and an unusual girl named Angel Dahl. Desperate and on the run with Angel, pursued by a deadly operative, Adam races to other exotic locations, unsure if Angel is friend or foe, or if his grandfather was a hero or a villain. Three clues hold the dark secret of David McLean’s past—the letter W, a glass eye with a golden iris, and the haunting words of someone named Mr. Know.

Double You is the sequel to both Separated, part of The Seven Prequels and Last Message, part of Seven (The Series).

"Teen readers who know and love the James Bond stories and movies will enjoy the novel and find many similarities and intricacies linking back to Fleming’s work within the storyline...As with 'Seven The Series,' readers who are fond of action and adventure series like Alex Rider, Maximum Ride, or C.H.E.R.U.B. will find something to like in these novels."

---

"Posh hotels, buried treasure, dangerous secrets and uncertain alliances all add up to a rip-roaring mystery. Adam, who fancies himself something of a Daniel Craig Bond, is both a dangerous opponent and a conflicted hero. While this fast-paced romantic mystery is a volume in a seven-piece set, it clearly shines in its own right. A romantic spy thriller with a heart."

---

"This thrill-a-minute series will hook reluctant readers as well as fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne."

Last Message

Orca Book Publishers | Seven (the Series)


Adam has a good life in Buffalo: great parents, a cute girlfriend, adequate grades. He's not the best at anything, but he's not the worst either. He secretly lusts after Vanessa, the hottest girl in school, and when his dead grandfather's will stipulates that he go on a mission to France, Adam figures he might just have a chance to impress Vanessa and change his life from good to great. When he gets to France, he discovers he has not one but three near-impossible tasks before him. He also discovers a dark and shameful episode from his grandfather's past, something Adam is supposed to make amends for. But how can he do that when he barely speaks the language and his tasks become more and more dangerous? Despite the odds, Adam finds a way to fulfill his grandfather's wishes and, in the process, become worthy of bearing his name.

Adam's adventures start in Separated, part of The Seven Prequels and continue in Double You, part of The Seven Sequels.

"Part mystery and part adventure, Last Message is a fantastic and thrilling page-turner that is a perfect antidote to the glut of paranormal romance and Hunger Games-esque science fiction that have been flooding the shelves...This series is going to be very popular with older elementary and younger high-school audiences, particularly boys. Last Message is a great crossover series from junior to teen collections, and it would be well-suited to either category. Readers that are fond of action and adventure series like Alex Rider or Young James Bond will find something to like in this series. The "Seven" series is a must-purchase for public and school libraries that are looking to add more action and adventure stories to their collections for older children and teens. Highly Recommended."

---

"This novel certainly succeeds in motivating readers to continue the series, and discover the assignments given to the other cousins...The adventure elements and the French history hit the target."

---

"Perfect for reluctant readers, especially male readers who are ready for some mystery and adventure along with an easy to take dose of classic literature and art."

---

"The missions [Adam is] assigned are amusing and suspenseful...An unusual tale."

---

"[The] adventures are exciting and readers will be anxious to pick up the next book in the series. Great for middle grade boys who want realistic fiction with action and suspense."

---

"The way that Peacock moved the story along was wonderfully unexpected. He didn't reveal too much or too little in any one place...Together with the other books, these make a great series."
