Jason Steed Absolutely Nothing Book #3 by Mark A. Cooper

Absolutely Nothing - Mark A. Cooper

It was a long time coming but worth the wait, Absolutely Nothing sums up why this is the best of the Teen Spy book series. 


The battle between Alex Rider & Jason Steed will continue, The scales just tipped towards Jason Steed with this novel.


It's typical Jason Steed, he goes on a mission and after he screws it up and upsets MI6 they call it off, so he did it alone to get back in the good books and solved it. However his ability to induce an adrenaline rush into his system to protect himself is causing more problems his temper is getting worse. Something that haunted him in books 1 & 2. 


Jason goes to the United States and attends the worlds top Military schools, he get involved in a few scrapes as we have come to expect with Jason. 


His father is captured along with several others working for the United Nations by the Vietnamese. (It's May 1975, just after the Vietnam war).


With the US and UK unable to send troops back into Vietnam because of public opinion, no one does anything to help the prisioners. With time running out towards a deadline, Jason Steed takes matters into his own hands and goes it alone.


While in Vietnam he uncovers a group of Amerasian (American fathered) children hunted by a Vietcong General. 


As the story unfolds the author displays his most impressive work todate. The descriptions in the Jungle really paint a picture it's like watching a movie. However this is Mark A. Coopers work and he as always brings on the tears when someone dies. It's not as emotional as Fledgling but still packs in action, emotion and humor.
