|User Summary:||The son of a secret agent is given some irradiated diamonds and gets involved in a conspiracy.|
This book uses first person narration, which seems a bit odd and causes some problems when the tense shifts from past to present. Other than that, this is a pretty good gamebook, with many different paths to take and a rather large number of endings.
This is an odd one. It is based on the TSR roleplaying game Top Secret, which is guess was the secret agent version of D&D (I always imagine the 80s film "Cloak and Dagger").
Although it was written by Rose Estes, the founder of the series, it follows a very different format. It is written in the first person, so it sounds like the main character is describing his life to you, and waxes back and forth between present and past tense throughout the story. I don't know if it's just me and I've been so conditioned to 2nd person narratives, but I found it distracting. Thankfully, I think this is the only book in the series that attempts this style.
