Steven “Steel” Trapp has been placed in an East Coast boarding school for gifted kids by his FBI agent father. He soon discovers that there’s a clubby element of faculty and upperclassmen that is very secretive and protective. To his surprise, his friend Kaileigh arrives at the school, and it isn’t long before the two realize that this is not your normal prep school. There are dark forces at play. Foreign agents may have penetrated the school’s secrecy and have sleepers in place: kids spying on future kid spies. Competition and intrigue among the elite faculty threaten security. As Steel and Kaileigh are recruited for their first run — trying to break a ring of pickpockets in a Boston hotel — things go impossibly wrong. Betrayal and conspiracy cloud what should have been a straightforward assignment. And all too soon, the two find that their very lives are in danger. Download and start listening now!

    " This book is a sequel. Is it eligible? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 2/4/2014

    " I really like the main character, Steel. I wish I had a memory like him. This book was very good, even considering I have not read the first book yet in this series. I love all the twists and turns. It kept me on my toes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 1/27/2014

    " An exciting story featuring Steele Trap - who is enrolled in boarding school - but not your ordinary boarding school...This book is filled with spies and adventure. Another great read by Ridley Pearson "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 1/14/2014

    " Fun and adventurous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savita | 12/19/2013

    " 4.5 stars--it was good, but I don't think it was quite as good as the first book. I still loved it, of course. The combination of espionage, teenage romance, and a new school was nearly perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 8/11/2013

    " So far very potteresque... More to come... Slow middle... Predictable ending... Decent but i liked book 1 better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 7/22/2013

    " Very cool concept of teens as spies without being cheesy. The 'romance' attempts come off a little awkward but the story kept me interested and the ending was unexpected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ann | 6/30/2013

    " i am a big fan of the first Steel Trapp but thought that this one was confusing at times to follow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa (Rae Gun Ramblings) | 6/6/2013

    " This was a fun quick book. I felt like the set up was a little long before you jumped into the action but it was a fun story. I liked the set up for potential future stories but I'm bummed to see there haven't been any more written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 5/4/2013

    " This book was awesome! I absolutely loved it! Packed with adventure, romance, and mystery this book is irrestable and would not allow itself to be put down even for a second. I can't wait for the next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 3/26/2013

    " A descent read and fun transition from the introduction of the previous book to the life of intrigue that appears to be promised in future books. I wouldn't mind reading more, but I'll wait on them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MaryAlice | 2/15/2013

    " Excellent!! This one is a little more suspenseful and complex than the first. Really great kid "Cloak and Dagger". Little bit of teenage romance. Seems like there should be another sequel, I sure hope so!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn Johnson | 1/19/2013

    " I don't often like sequels as much as I like the first book but this one was just as good and really full of surprises. Pearson has to write at least one more. Can't wait to ask him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juliana | 1/4/2013

    " Perfect book for a long drive. Listened to this with my son. Lots of Harry Potter elements, but without the magic. Still, well done and very enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari Jennifer | 8/22/2012

    " I just couldn't get into this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 1/7/2012

    " I have never been so in love with a mystery book before. Could not put this book down to saves ky life. Well paced and well written. Great sequal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 12/21/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luke | 8/11/2011

    " Got really good toward the end, when things came together, but it definitely could have been shorter. There's no way it should have taken 400 pages to tell this one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 7/18/2011

    " Fast paced and interesting. CIA/FBI potential kids attend a special academy. Looking forward to more adventures in this series. "

    " This is a fantastic book. It is a mystery about a teenage boy and his friend who attend a "special" high-school. The two of them have to find out the secret behind a secret society that may be out to cause more than trouble on campus.

    Teens would enjoy this book "
