Max believes his 70 year old neighbor, Mrs. W, is a spy, and his plans to get the evidence he needs to prove it include taking aikido training from her in her back yard with his team of spies-in-training. But, Max doesn't count on liking Mrs. W and aikido so much. When it comes time to turn her over to the CIA, Max faces a struggle of conscience. Kids of all ages enjoy this fast-paced, funny adventure that includes bullies, martial arts, sushi, pranks, and best of all Max - a kid with a unique way of getting into and out of trouble.

About the Author

Perhaps a late bloomer, Becky Black Powell started writing books after a career as a lawyer and nine years of homeschooling her son. She is the author of the Max Williams Adventures Series. The series features Max Williams, a quirky, super-smart kid who wants to work for the CIA, and his crack team of spies-in-training. Max uses his Aikido skills to help solve mysteries, and depends on his seventy-year old sensei, Mrs. W, for advice. Mother to a college-aged son who is a gifted Aikidoka, Powell was inspired by the tremendous positive impact his training brought to the entire family. One goal of the Max Williams books is to give back to the Aikido community by spreading the word about this beautiful martial art. Powell lives in rural Tennessee with her husband, two dogs - Angel, a Jack Russell Terrier, and Scout, a mixed-Lab - and a pond full of koi. When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, binge watching on Netflix, and being outside with her dogs. She is currently working on a novel for grown-ups, The Magdalene Controversy. She is always available to answer reader's questions and comments. You can contact her via e-mail at
