Double Vision (Hardcover)
Linc Baker can’t ever seem to stay out of trouble. Things get seriously out of hand when Linc causes some major league mayhem on a chicken farm during a school field trip. Landing him in even more hot water than usual, when the farm decides to sue his family for a million dollars, Linc is desperate.
Enter a secret government agency with an offer Linc cannot refuse. Their top kid agent, Benjamin Green, has vanished. Pandora (the secret agency) needs Linc to take Benjamin’s place during an exchange, otherwise the operation is a total bust and hundreds of man hours wasted. In exchange for Linc’s help, Pandora will make the lawsuit disappear. Why is the agency so bent on having Linc help them? He could be Benjamin Green’s twin!
Chaos follows Linc to Paris where the exchange goes wrong, he is beaten up by a girl and arrested all on his first day!
This book has it all: spies, double, gadgets, puzzles, trouble, heroes, danger and chickens! Everything you look for in a great action adventure book!
This is a really fun and smart spy novel! I enjoyed reading it! I rooted for Linc all the way thru, hoping he would finally find a way to use his natural tendency for chaos to help complete his mission and save his family.
The absolute best thing the author does is slip in knowledge (AKA learning), without ever distracting her readers from the central storyline. Which is a great fast paced spy / espionage novel! The use of codes and code breaking such as Morse Code, Pigpen Cipher and Hobo Signs were all used to great effect in the book. Another example was the Parisian setting, The Louvre and The Mona Lisa again were describe well and again were central to the plot and any learning was well hidden.
I would recommend this to a male reader (sorry girls, it is told exclusively from the guy perspective, however it does have a strong female character in it) between the ages of 8-12 who are looking for an action-packed book they will never get bored reading!— Amber
Fans of 39 Clues and Artemis Fowl will enjoy the fun, fresh thrill ride through this humorous, action-packed adventure from debut author F. T. Bradley.
In the trilogy opener, twelve-year-old Lincoln Baker finds himself in a world of trouble First, Linc's seemingly harmless prank on a school field trip ends in expulsion and a lawsuit.

Turns out Linc looks exactly like one of Pandora's top kid agents, Benjamin Green, who vanished while on a critical spy mission in Paris. If Linc agrees to take his place, they ll get him back in school and make that costly lawsuit disappear.
But the mission is a lot more complicated than it seems. A highly valuable copy of the Mona Lisa has gone missing and now Linc must make sure it doesn t fall into the wrong hands. Too bad Linc isn t a black belt math genius who can run a four-minute mile like his double, Ben, because he ll need those skills to make it out alive. . . .
“A great voice, with a good heart, some self-awareness, and a funny style.”
-Horn Book Magazine
“Lincoln Baker is an awesome main character: savvy, funny, and like a young James Bond, he can’t resist the chance to start some trouble. Give him a mystery to solve, stick him in Paris, arm him with gadgets, and watch stuff go boom.”
