Scary book in which Adam is pursued from birth ( at the stroke of midnight in the Year 2000) until present day where a cult believes that if he turns 14, he will destroy them. The cult, led by a sociopath called Coron, have eliminated every child born on the first of Jan 2000. Adam is the last one they are sent to kill but through sheer will and cunning, he seems to escape.
Set in London, the book is creepy in that Coron is completely insane, and yet he seems to attract the lost to him. He even infiltrates the police force so that when an attempt on Adam's life goes horribly wrong and his adopted parents are injured, Adam is suddenly the prime suspect in an attempted murder case as the result of the cult cop's influence. Only Adam's childhood friend Megan and a strange boy called Simon ( who is a cult escapee) seem to believe that he is innocent. Gripping, suspense , violent and full of psychological terror, this is an interesting story that would of had more stars had the author not waffled around so much! ( )
