In this sequel to Evil Genius Cadel has been rescued from his evil father and is in Australian foster care but a foster brother is very destructive and Cadel moves into a foster home for smart kids that is a front for the "Genius Squad." There, he is reunited with Sonja and work to bring down GenoME. But soon Cadel's supposed father escapes from prison and kidnaps Cadel and Sonja but is rescued the police officer who has been keeping an eye on him. I didn't read the first book and on the whole I followed this one well until the end when if finally comes out who Cadel's father really is. (at this point they start mentioning characters that aren't explained really well). It is a good book but not great. I vote nay.
