Secret government agent Zack Carter likes gorgeous plates of lasagna, beer, cars, guns, and action. Lots and lots of action. In The Impenetrable Spy, Carter almost gets more action than he can handle as he squares off against Chinese terrorists, a corrupt politician, a raggedy psychopath with gnarly yellow teeth, and—my personal favorite—the sly Frenchman, Vincent Bon Jones. The Impenetrable Spy chronicles Zack Carter’s ruthless, bloody adventures as he travels from one locale to the next, foiling one heinous plot after another.

This book is 86 pages long, reads quickly and was written by twelve-year-old author Spencer Brokaw. I think it’s an excellent first book. Spencer has a big vocabulary, a knack for describing complex settings and a comprehension of plot, character and, of course, action. Many of the scenes reminded me of video games like Call of Duty and Splinter Cell, but as I’ve spent many dozens of hours playing those games myself, the scenes had nostalgic value. In any case, good work, Spencer. Don’t stop writing. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Review by: Sue Owen on Dec. 22, 2011 :
This story was easy to follow most of the time and had a good definition of characters. The author takes the reader by the hand and leads us through the storyline. There is a lot of imagination in this book and the character development shows good promise.

This book was written at a lower level then this reviewer normally likes to read so I had trouble following it sometimes. It also has some issues with continuity; for example in one place he was sitting on a chair in a room but he didn’t enter the room until a few paragraphs after that. It was written for a 3rd or 4th grade reading level so the sentences seemed choppy to me but would probably be great for that age group.

Generally, I think this book shows great promise for a new author. I encourage him to continue with his endeavors in writing and I hope to be able to read things of his in the future. I would, however, also encourage him to go back through this book and fix his continuity issues. This is a good book for that age level and worth a read.

The Impenetrable Spy is just that, an impenetrable spy. Zack Carter learns how to travel back in time. He can't die. He's the perfect spy.

Zack's goal throughout the book is to save the United States from World War 3. He fights countless bad guys and keeps his country safe. He drives awesome cars, listens to awesome music, and is just generally an awesome guy.

He's the guy you'd want to save you if you're captured by terrorists, hands down.

Spencer, a 12 year old, has woven an intricate tale of murder, lies, and an impending war on the States.

Even at 12, he can tell a story and tell it well. Given the time, I have no doubt his writing will blossom further with age and wisdom.

I can't lie. There are grammar mistakes, and his writing style could use work. But, it DOESN'T detract from the story, and I recommend this novel to all people who enjoy a good, fast paced spy thriller.
