Synopsis
*Styrus, a computer virus so powerful it can penetrate any computer and steal its secrets, has fallen into the hands of the wrong man *His name - Smith *His ambition - to rule the world When fans demanded a sequel to Running, Barbara Spencer was happy to oblige. Set in the 21st century, Turning Point portrays a world which we may very easily come to inherit. One dominated by money and greed, with Europe a major world power and England reduced to island status off the coast of Europe, in which the little guy stands no chance. The action-packed, Turning Point follows Scott Anderson and Bill, one of the scientists that created Styrus, as they head for Geneva - where Bill is to address the United Nations and formally hand over control of the computer programme. Meanwhile Mr. Smith, despite a massive manhunt by the American Secret Service, continues his meteoric rise to power, driving global corporations into bankruptcy. When Scott accidentally overhears a secret conversation, the mirage of calm and safety that his family and friends have tried so hard to create is shattered forever. Within forty-eight hours, Scott has become a wanted criminal, accused of gunning down an innocent bystander; his bodyguard, his home, and his father - all gone. With only his school friends believing in his innocence, Scott heads for Exeter on his motorbike to the headquarters of the American Secret Service - only to find that destroyed too. Barbara Spencer's new book once again offers young adults a thrilling, roller-coaster of a read.
