Synopsis

Synopsis

Riley, a teen orphan boy living in Victorian London, has had the misfortune of being apprenticed to Albert Garrick, an illusionist who has fallen on difficult times and now uses his unique conjuring skills to gain access to victims' dwellings. On one such escapade, Garrick brings his reluctant apprentice along and urges him to commit his first killing. Riley is saved from having to commit the grisly act when the intended victim turns out to be a scientist from the future, part of the FBI's Witness Anonymous Relocation Program (WARP) Riley is unwittingly transported via wormhole to modern day London, followed closely by Garrick. 

In modern London, Riley is helped by Chevron Savano, a nineteen-year-old FBI agent sent to London as punishment after a disastrous undercover, anti-terrorist operation in Los Angeles. Together Riley and Chevie must evade Garrick, who has been fundamentally altered by his trip through the wormhole. Garrick is now not only evil, but he also possesses all of the scientist's knowledge. He is determined to track Riley down and use the timekey in Chevie's possession to make his way back to Victorian London where he can literally change the world.

About Eoin Colfer

Eoin Colfer - WARP Book 1: The Reluctant Assassin
Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) is a former elementary school teacher whose Artemis Fowl series has become an international bestseller. He is also the author of The Wish List, and the New York Times bestseller The Supernaturalist. He lives in Ireland with his wife and two children. Visit him online at www.eoincolfer.com

Eoin Colfer nació y creció en Wexford, en el sureste de Irlanda. Eoin es el biógrafo oficial de Artemis Fowl, responsable de siete bestsellers en los que pone al descubierto las proezas de este joven cerebro criminal. Por su lado, Artemis Fowl de­nuncia que Colfer es sólo un escritor de litera­tura fantástica que inventa historias sensacio­nalistas sobre él. Sea como sea, le guste o no a Artemis, las biografías de Colfer han tenido un éxito espectacular, llegando a encabezar las listas de ventas y ganando numerosos premios. Eoin Colfer todavía vive en Irlanda, pero pre­fiere no especificar dónde por si acaso a Arte­mis o a Mayordomo, su guardaespaldas, se le ocurre hacerle una visita.
