Foreign Editions

  • In January 2009, started to list a French Language edition of this book available in Canada. The French title is Frank et Joe, agents très spéciaux, tome 2: à bout de course, or as rougly translated: "Frank and Joe, Very Special Agents, Volume 2: To Boils Race". It is unclear whether this book, and the translation of Extreme Danger, are the same translation as used for the editions released in France, or if the books have been translated into Quebec French.
