Eoin Colfer returns to the world of crime.

The cover and plot description are out for the new series from Eoin Colfer. Apparently, it's going to be called W.A.R.P.: The Reluctant Assassin, Colfer is describing it as "Oliver Twist meets The Matrix", and the official plot description runs as follows:

The reluctant assassin is Riley, a Victorian boy who is suddenly plucked from his own time and whisked into the twenty-first century, accused of murder and on the run.

Riley has been pulled into the FBI's covert W.A.R.P. operation (Witness Anonymous Relocation Program). He and young FBI Agent Chevie Savano are forced to flee terrifying assassin-for-hire Albert Garrick, who pursues Riley through time and will not stop until he has hunted him down. Barely staying one step ahead, Riley and Chevie must stay alive and stop Garrick returning to his own time with knowledge and power that could change the world forever.
I wonder if Chevie is female? And if so, why does Colfer keep going for these age-inappropriate pairings for his main characters? I mean... he has heard of fanfic, hasn't he? People had to jump through some serious hoops to make an Artemis/Holly story work, but they managed.
