Description
In this third "thrilling" (Kirkus Reviews) installment in the New York Times bestselling series from Edgar Award winner James Ponti, the young group of spies help a fellow agent in another international adventure perfect for fans of Spy School and Mrs. Smith's Spy School for Girls.
After taking down a mole within their organization, the City Spies are ready for their next mission—once again using their unique skills and ability to infiltrate places adults can't. The sinister Umbra has their sights set on recruiting a North Korean nuclear physicist by any means necessary, and the City Spies plan to keep an eye on his son by sending Paris to the chess prodigy's tournaments in Moscow and Beijing.

Meanwhile, Sydney's embedded as a junior reporter for a teen lifestyle site as she follows the daughter of a British billionaire on tour with the biggest act on her father's music label to uncover what links both the band and the billionaire have to a recent threat from an old Soviet missile base.

From a daring break-in at one of London's most exclusive homes to a dangerous undercover mission to a desperate search and rescue operation on the streets of Beijing, the City Spies have their work cut out for them on their most dangerous mission yet.

        December 15, 2021
        MI6's secret youth operation is back for more world saving. For the young people living at the Foundation for Atmospheric Research and Monitoring, leading double--or triple, more like--lives is nothing new by now. Overseen by a male MI6 agent with the nickname Mother and a female scientist called Monty, the five kids born around the globe and recruited to this base in Scotland have mounted one successful mission after another, so they're poised for success as they prepare for the next one. Rwandan-born Paris, who was raised in France, is taking center stage in an operation to rescue a North Korean scientist being targeted by the international criminal ring Umbra, posing as a chess player in an international competition that includes the scientist's son. Meanwhile, White Australian-born Sydney has a role to play as a teen journalist following the socialite daughter of billionaire Reginald Banks and KB5, the hot British boy band Banks put together. Other City Spies--Nepalese teen girl Kat and Brazilian teen boy Rio--will play supporting roles in tech and espionage, though Nuyorican Brooklyn is being grounded at summer school so she can catch up to her classmates. Ponti has once again crafted a thrilling adventure with lovable characters, alluring and detailed international settings, and villains who aren't cartoonishly evil. The conclusion is wholly satisfying yet full of potential for the next installment. A smashing success. (dossiers) (Thriller. 10-14)

        Grades 5-8 The third volume in the City Spies series features five well-trained secret agents between 12 and 15 years old, whose current mission for MI6 is to enable the defection of a North Korean nuclear scientist and his son, a brilliant chess player, before a sinister, criminal network abducts them. Nigerian-born Paris, accompanied by his adoptive father, a British intelligence agent with the cover name Mother, travels to Moscow and Beijing ostensibly to compete in chess tournaments, but he's actually planning to leave with the scientist and his son. Meanwhile, Paris's brother and sisters carry out related assignments calling for sharp wits, skills, and courage. The settings are colorful and the carefully plotted stories are suspenseful, but it's Ponti's characters and their relationships that draw readers back to the City Spies series. Fast-paced action scenes are interspersed with conversations that are sometimes unrelated to the mission. In this novel, 15-year-old Paris steps into the spotlight while confronting questions about his identity, and Mother reveals his pre-MI6 backstory. An appealing mixture of espionage, action, and personalities in a contemporary setting.
