ALA Booklist
There's a rat in the White House rat who wants to kill the president. Double Vision: Code Name 711, the second installment in Bradley's planned trilogy, finds 12-year-old secret-agent Linc Baker again working with Pandora, a top-secret government spy agency is time in Washington, D.C. Fans of Double Vision (2012) will recall that Linc is an accidental agent, a dead ringer for official spy-kid Ben Green, who is a straight arrow and Linc's nemesis. The junior agents must infiltrate the oldest spy organization in America; recover the coat of George Washington that is thought to make the wearer invincible; and save the president from an assassination attempt. Linc quickly ditches Ben and teams up with First Daughter Amy and junior-agent gadget-master Henry to try and crack the spy code and track down the coat. This is a hilarious caper, featuring plenty of nifty gadgets and gross-out scenes, led by an authentic, smart-mouthed hero that fans of the Alex Rider and 39 Clues series will love.

Kirkus Reviews
Amateur secret operative Linc Baker is once again tapped for service. After proving himself as more than just a double for junior secret agent Benjamin Green, espionage agency Pandora once again calls on Linc, part-time amateur spy and full-time smart aleck, for help (Double Vision, 2012). This time, the stakes are even higher. Following a series of internal threats against the president and her family, Pandora springs into action, determined to flush out the mole and find the newest Dangerous Double--that of George Washington's coat. (Improbably, Dangerous Doubles are duplicates of real-world items endowed with special properties.) With the assistance of the president's daughter, Amy, Linc begins investigating the Culper Ring, a group of Revolutionary War spies that continues into the present day. In the end, however, Linc's success can be attributed more to his radical skateboarding and his unorthodox style than his secret-agent skills. Improbable plot twists are partially remedied by the sometimes-irreverent and always-enthusiastic Linc. Pacing often lags as the plot is sidelined for a lesson on American history or a walking tour of Washington, D.C. Much like the first installment, this adventure suffers from a lack of originality. However, also as in the previous book, Linc manages to shine, making this worth the read. Marginally better than the first. (Adventure. 8-12)

Gr 4&11;7&12; Lincoln Baker, 12, is back. After an otherwise normal day with friends, he realizes that he is being trailed by black cars from Pandora, a top-secret agency. They need Lincoln to once again work with kid spy Benjamin Green. His assignment is to protect the president's daughter, Amy. He soon learns that a man who goes by the name "Dagger" seeks to kill the president while wearing George Washington's Coat, which has gone missing. The pi&2;ce de r&3;sistance is that the garment makes the wearer invincible. Due to their strong dislike of each other and mutual love of competition, Lincoln and Ben are each determined to solve the mystery first. Along the way, readers meet Amy, an engaging, intelligent, and witty charcter who befriends both sleuths. Lincoln's voice remains clear and consistent; he is sarcastic, quick-witted, and ingenious. Bradley cleverly weaves adventure and history throughout this fast-paced book. A must read for mystery fans, including reluctant readers.&12; Megan McGinnis, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY

In the second book of the action-packed Double Vision series, ordinary twelve-year-old Linc Baker must go undercover in Washington, DC, to stop a CIA mole from assassinating the president. With an unforgettably funny voice, high-stakes espionage, and real American spy history dating back to the Revolutionary War, this is the latest adventure in the Double Vision series that ALA Booklist says "fans of Alex Rider and 39 Clues will love."

After the government receives a threat on the president's life from someone named Dagger, supersecret spy agency Pandora wants Linc to go to Washington, DC, to protect the first daughter, Amy, and find the dangerous double of George Washington's legendary coat, rumored to make its wearer invincible. Unfortunately for Linc, his by-the-book agent nemesis, Ben Green, is already on the case and making him look bad. With Amy's help, Linc will have to dig deep into the history of America's first spies—the Culper Ring—to beat Ben at his own game and stop Dagger before it's too late.
