School Library Journal - 04/01/2018 Gr 1–3—There is a glamorous aspect to the photos in this series, featuring perfectly modeled agents in aviator sunglasses. In addition, engaging hooks such as "You use a fake name. You must get others to tell you secrets. You are a CIA officer" will have readers diving right in. However, once they begin reading, students will find that fighting crime on a typical day is a balance of excitement and tedium, with such additional tasks as working on computers, doing background checks, and preventing identity theft. Job descriptions are kept short and sweet: U.S. marshals "move prisoners" and "keep witnesses safe." Vocabulary, such as polygraph and background check, is in bold and defined in a color-blocked segment at the bottom of pages. Stock photos show agents in uniform engaged in a variety of tasks, though some of the images seem dated or are just window-dressing shots of government buildings. VERDICT Crime-fighting never ceases to be of interest to elementary readers, and this set is as informative as it is appealing. - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
