Peter lives in Dorset and in his spare time he enjoys collecting unusual artifacts like Neolithic arrowheads, ancient Egyptian rings, and fossilized dinosaur poo. Visit him online at


"Fans of Anthony Horowitz who've devoured the Alex Rider books will gravitate to the high octane adventure, cool gadgets, and whip-smart characters in Urban Outlaws. . . . Cinematic scenes and sharp dialogue elevate this series from the pack of action-adventure titles." --School Library Journal"Chases, false leads, and of course lots of technology abound in this nail-biter of a sequel. Perfect for fans of Alex Rider, the cliffhangerending will leave readers begging for the next installment." --Booklist"The intense action and cool gadgets are very thrilling." --Kirkus Reviews"Robin Hood meets the twenty-first century in Urban Outlaws, a heist story full of action, suspense, surprises, but most importantly, heart." --Matthew Kirby, author of The Quantum League series and ICEFALL, on URBAN OUTLAWS"Where's my grappling hook and electronics gear? I'm ready to join Jack, Charlie, Wren, and the rest of the Urban Outlaw gang on their next mission. My youngest son and I spent as much time laughing as we did fighting over Urban Outlaws. We can't wait for the next book." --J. Scott Savage, author of the Case File 13 and Farworld series, on URBAN OUTLAWS"Heads up, fans of Alex Rider: here's the next thing... The gripping plot twists through underground lairs, rooftop break-ins, shadowy government interrogations, and more... A fun, fast pick worthy of every middle-grade collection, this may even catch the attention of older reluctant readers." --School Library Journal on URBAN OUTLAWS"A great series opener for middle school readers with lots of action, technology, and character." --Library Media Connection on URBAN OUTLAWS"This debut novel packs in a lot of action that kids will gobble up with gusto.... [F]illed with exhilarating drama, clever dialogue, descriptions of cool gadgets, and characters who may be young but who display strong senses of social responsibility. A thrilling tale of a Robin Hood for the iPod generation." --Kirkus Reviews on URBAN OUTLAWS
