Remember Kyle Parker? He's that kid who started the Secret Agents a few summers ago to help out his dad, and now he's back for a new adventure. Remember Lucinda Winston? Super cute, practically a genius, and completely in love with oblivious Kyle? Well, now she has a problem-a BIG problem. Or rather, her mom has a problem. See, Lucinda's mom is this totally brilliant biology professor at NYU. But something happened to Professor Winston twenty-three years ago, and now it's come back to haunt her. Lucinda's mom is suddenly so scared that she's ready to take her family and leave New York City forever. Only Kyle can't let that happen. Not when he's finally realized how cool Lucinda is, and especially not when such a perfect case for the Secret Agents falls into his lap . . . The Secret Agents Strike Back is the second book from Robyn Freedman Spizman and Mark Johnston about Kyle Parker and his gang of undercover friends. Filled with adventure, danger, and the sights, sounds, and smells of New York City, this is the book for anyone willing to do whatever it takes to help a friend.

Grade 5–8—In this sequel to Secret Agent(S & S, 2005), Kyle Parker, a teen who pulled together a small group of friends to solve mysteries, has a crush on one of them, Lucinda Wilson. Her mother, a molecular biology professor at New York University, has decided to move her family to Atlanta, under mysterious circumstances that involve something that happened to her when she was a graduate student 23 years ago. Kyle, Lucinda, and the rest of the Secret Agents find out that Ms. Wilson never finished her dissertation, despite her position at the university. They learn that she discovered a potential cure for cancer, information she had used in her dissertation, which was then stolen by her professor at that time to enhance his own career. Kyle, Lucinda, and the other Secret Agents embark on a series of adventures throughout New York City in an effort to trick the culprit into publicly admitting what he had done and rectify the situation before it is too late. This is a lighthearted adventure filled with quirky characters such as a teenage boy with a gift for singing opera and a famous romance novelist who writes under a female pseudonym. The book is fast paced, and each chapter ends with a hook that should keep reluctant readers eager to continue. It should appeal to children who enjoy mysteries with a bit of slapstick humor thrown in.—Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library
