Show synopsis Cybernetically-enhanced, bionic crime fighter Jordan Stryker is going to have the criminals running for the shadows in the first of this gripping new action-adventure series for the Twenty-First Century. Twelve-year-old Ben Smith's life is changed forever when a chain-reaction of explosions rips through his home, killing his mother and blowing off Ben's right arm. But where Ben Smith dies, Jordan Stryker is born - a technologically-enhanced, bionic boy built to fight crime. Now, acting as an undercover agent for secret police force Unit Red; his rebuilt arm can punch through steel; his brain links directly to the internet; his hearing is super-sensitive, and he can spot hidden weapons thanks to his X-Ray vision - which definitely has other 'perks'. On his first mission for Unit Red, Jordan is plunged into an underground world of dangerous gangs and extreme activists in the hunt for the criminals responsible for the explosion that killed his mother. But as Jordan struggles to come to terms with the loss of his family, remnants of Alan's old life are around every corner, especially when it reunites him with Amy - Alan's best friend, and daughter of one of London's biggest gangland bosses. This work offers a fast-paced, thrill ride with Britain's newest, bravest, most up-to-date action hero, from the best-selling author of "Kiss of Death".
