About the Book

Genius Squad

In GENIUS SQUAD by Catherine Jinks, readers reconnect with Cadel Piggott, the computer mastermind first introduced in Jinks’s acclaimed novel EVIL GENIUS. Cadel --- now a former evil genius --- tries to use his amazing intellect and skills to bring down the criminal empire that threatens his very existence.

GENIUS SQUAD picks up where EVIL GENIUS left off. The Axis Institute for World Domination has been blown up. Dr. Phineas Darkkon is dead. Prosper English is in jail awaiting trial. And Cadel is a boy without a country, caught in a sea of red tape, mired in foster care. His only bright spot is his friendship with Sonja Pirovic, a mathematical phenom trapped in a body wracked with spasms and convulsions. The two are approached by a secret organization of other teen whiz kids whose stated goal is to bring down GenoME, one of Darkkon’s pet projects. They offer Cadel a real home and all the technology his heart desires. But can they be trusted?
