THE RELUCTANT ASSASSIN (W.A.R.P. Book 1), by Eoin Colfer

The story:  Orphan Riley is apprenticed to a murderer in 1890s London; Chevie just wants to get old enough to join the FBI in the 21st century–but a wormhole, planted in London courtesy of WARP (Witness Anonymous Relocation Program) brings the teens together on a collision course that looks likely to leave both of them dead…courtesy of Riley’s master, the illusionist and killer Albert Garrick.  Only if Riley can use his gutter-bred street smarts, and Chevie can employ every skill her training with the Bureau has given her, can the two hope to escape the assassin and get his reluctant apprentice out of the business fast enough to keep them both alive.

Mrs. Friend says: In this story, you get both fast-paced thriller action together with a time-traveling mystery: so check this one out, as long as you’re not afraid of a little BLOOD!
