Booklist - 11/15/2013 There’s a rat in the White House—a rat who wants to kill the president. Double Vision: Code Name 711, the second installment in Bradley’s planned trilogy, finds 12-year-old secret-agent Linc Baker again working with Pandora, a top-secret government spy agency—this time in Washington, D.C. Fans of Double Vision (2012) will recall that Linc is an accidental agent, a dead ringer for official spy-kid Ben Green, who is a straight arrow and Linc’s nemesis. The junior agents must infiltrate the oldest spy organization in America; recover the coat of George Washington that is thought to make the wearer invincible; and save the president from an assassination attempt. Linc quickly ditches Ben and teams up with First Daughter Amy and junior-agent gadget-master Henry to try and crack the spy code and track down the coat. This is a hilarious caper, featuring plenty of nifty gadgets and gross-out scenes, led by an authentic, smart-mouthed hero that fans of the Alex Rider and 39 Clues series will love. - Copyright 2013 Booklist.
School Library Journal - 01/01/2014 Gr 4–7—Lincoln Baker, 12, is back. After an otherwise normal day with friends, he realizes that he is being trailed by black cars from Pandora, a top-secret agency. They need Lincoln to once again work with kid spy Benjamin Green. His assignment is to protect the president's daughter, Amy. He soon learns that a man who goes by the name "Dagger" seeks to kill the president while wearing George Washington's Coat, which has gone missing. The pièce de résistance is that the garment makes the wearer invincible. Due to their strong dislike of each other and mutual love of competition, Lincoln and Ben are each determined to solve the mystery first. Along the way, readers meet Amy, an engaging, intelligent, and witty charcter who befriends both sleuths. Lincoln's voice remains clear and consistent; he is sarcastic, quick-witted, and ingenious. Bradley cleverly weaves adventure and history throughout this fast-paced book. A must read for mystery fans, including reluctant readers.—Megan McGinnis, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
