I am not sure what type of reader he is but the books that immediately come to mind are

Spy X Series - the first one is The Code by Peter Lerangis 

The Spy High series by A.J. Butcher

Latter day Spies: Spyhunt by Michele Ashman Bell

Most of the other books I can think of are more sleuth than spy.

Through this site I ordered Secret Messages (Usbourne Spy Guide) for my two boys (ages 9 &12) and they loved it. It's a little older but they loved making secret spy gear and gadgets and learning codes, etc.

Has he/she read the "A to Z Mysteries"? They might be on the easy side but they'll go quickly. "Harriet the Spy" was one of my favorite books when I was a kid. Maybe your child would like that?

You could try 'The Mysterious Benedict Society' By B. Stewart.  (cant remember the first name)

Not exactly a spy, but the Encyclopedia Brown books immediately jumped to mind for me.  I don't really remember the reading level, but I know I liked them as a kid, at some age.
