The Snake Trap Travis Delaney Investigates

Written by Kevin Brooks

Key Stage 3 Crime / Mystery

LoveReading View on The Snake Trap Travis Delaney Investigates

This is the third adventure for Kevin Brooks’ teen private investigator and it starts with an almighty bang. Terrorists lob a grenade into the offices of Delaney & Co leaving one man dead. Then they kidnap Travis. The action continues at this pace throughout the book as Travis, still on the hunt for the people who killed his parents, finds himself in all sorts of life-or-death situations. Brooks’ style – direct and urgent – is brilliantly suited to this sort of story and he’s skilful enough too to allow time for reflection and nuance. An excellent thriller with an impressive and impressively convincing teen central character. ~ Andrea Reece
