The Boy Who Knew Too Much

“This fabulous Young Adult novel mixes a Hitchcockian ‘man on the run across country’ plot with Bond-like spy stuff, and it brilliantly succeeds. For a debut novel, ‘The Boy Who Knew Too Much’ is extraordinary. It moves at a brisk pace, it’s got a great teenage character at its helm (and great female foil), and a twisty plot. The book is suspenseful and a lot of fun, and perfectly fine reading for adults as well as ‘young’ adults.
–Raymond Benson, official James Bond continuation novelist



The Boy Who Knew Too Much is an action-charged YA adventure that blends the suspense of Alfred Hitchcock with the thrills of James Bond.

While on a school trip to Europe, Milwaukee teenager Brian Parker hopes for just a taste of the glamour and excitement of his favorite spy novels. Brian gets way more than a taste, though, when he stumbles across a wounded spy in a Lucerne alley.

The man’s dying words catapult Brian into a desperate chase across the continent. America’s latest super weapon is at stake, and everyone from a rogue CIA officer to a sadistic criminal mastermind is after it – and Brian. New enemies emerge at every turn, but Brian soon finds a welcome ally in Larissa, a beautiful French girl who loves the Ramones and is handy with a blast of pepper spray.

Brian faces a deadly path, but reading all those spy novels has taught him a few tricks of the trade. They just might save his life.
