|The cover of one of Joe's books, Jimmy Coates: Revenge|
For those of you who haven't heard of Joe (Shock! Horror!), he writes a series called Jimmy Coates. The title character is a genetically engineered assassin. But he doesn't know it yet. Until men in suits (the epitome of ominous...ness...) turn up of the doorstep; Jimmy's parents seem to recognize them, especially when they say, "We're here for the boy." Jimmy's mother tells him to run. He does - and thus begins the adventure...The first book, Killer, (or 'Assassin?' in America) was published in 2005 and there have been six books since. The two last ones, Blackout and Genesis, are yet to be published. I've been reading this series for so long...I'm very loyal to it!
Joe's event took place in a circus big top! Like all my inner kid's dreams come true.
