1. DEEP END
Your life can change in a second. Maddie Cooper's did. She and her parents were gunned down in the street by an unknown assailant. Maddie's mother was killed and her Scotland Yard Inspector father was left in a wheelchair. Maddie was injured in the fall, her career as a dancer finished almost before it had begun. Searching for a new role in life, Maddie signs up as a trainee in her father's notorious flying squad: Police Investigation Command.

PIC has a roving brief to combat crime in London and Maddie, quick-witted, intelligent and intuitive, is well-equipped to cope with the demands of her new job. She teams up with Alex Cox, an ace undercover man who can slip in and out of accents as easily as he does disguises, and Danny Bell, an electronics whizzkid with a razor-sharp mind. These three talented teenagers have the ability, courage and technical know-how to fight crime, wherever it rears its ugly head on the streets of London. Their first assignment together sees the three solving a diamond heist and putting the gun-man who murdered Maddie's mother behind bars for the rest of his life.

Danny, Maddie and Alex are trainee special agents with Police Investigation Command. When they're briefed on an 'ice-cream war' at first they think it's some kind of joke. But when they hear that thugs and enforcers are moving in on legitimate licence-holders of ice cream and hot dog vans and that traders are being beaten up and even murdered, they know that there's danger on the streets. Link this with visiting politicians and attending a performance at the Royal Albert Hall, plus the protection of a priceless jewel…it's no surprise that the three teenage agents have a major protection job on their hands.

4. KISS & KILL

Mickey Stone, the head of Stonecor, London’s most powerful gangland organisation, is out of prison. His trial is less than two weeks away and he has just executed a daring escape from custody.

PIC is spearheading the operation to recapture him. He seems to be headed for an international symposium of gangland leaders, all anxious to claim a stake in the UK’s burgeoning gambling industry. But his son, Eddie, has other ideas. He is set to take over Stonecor, and is in no mood to let his father make a comeback.

The Stones are no strangers to Maddie Cooper, youngest of the PIC trainees. Mickey Stone was responsible for the shooting that left her mother dead, her father crippled and herself badly injured. She had later found herself kidnapped by Eddie Stone, a man she finds both terrifying and compelling .

When PIC’s investigations dramatically throw Maddie and Eddie together again, the consequences are electrifying. Has Maddie misjudged him? Can she trust him to help her smash the Stonecor crime ring once and for all? Or will her emotions put her life in jeopardy once again?

Three agents. Two missions. One aim – to fight crime on the streets of London.

Maddie and Alex are sent undercover to investigate the recent prolific thefts of luxury cars in London. They have to forget their identities as PIC officers, and immerse themselves in the seedy underworld of car crime.

Meanwhile Danny is working on a top-secret mission – to expose Hydra, an international arms-smuggling operation. He works his iron will with informants and exercises steely patience in surveillance work.

The two cases crash together when Robert Fraser, an MOD agent, is assassinated at his home – the same night his magnificent Bentley is stolen. PIC believes Fraser was a mole, and that his real job was head of Hydra UK. But any evidence was in his briefcase, which was inside the stolen car.

Danny, Alex and Maddie must pull together as a team like never before and watch each other’s backs. It seems everyone wants this mission to fail – at any cost…

Hot cars, fast movers and high stakes make this the Special Agents’ most thrilling and dangerous adventure yet.
