Teagan Frost, a psychokinetic wannabe chef and sort-of government agent, is having a hell of a day. She and her fellow sort of agents from China Shop Movers, an off-the-books CIA black bag ops group, have been thrown off a 30-story balcony, stolen 40 pounds of meth, crashed into and collapsed the supports of a Los Angeles freeway bridge, and eaten the world’s best fried chicken—all before noon. When yet another child escapee from the mysterious and elusive School makes his presence and devastating electrical power known in Los Angeles, Teagan is determined to save Leo from being a lab rat at the hands of the government, as she once was. But L.A. has yet to recover from the devastation caused by the last School escapee, and impulsive Teagan will have to get her sh*t together if she wants to give little Leo a safe place.
VERDICT The third installment in Ford’s “Frost Files” series, this novel is a non-stop adrenaline high. Fans of the series will eagerly awaitthe further adventures of Teagan and her cohorts, and newcomers will quickly fall in love with Jackson’s quirky cast of characters, imaginative storytelling, and wry wit.
