A new hero, a new mission: meet CHERUB's latest recruit. Twelve-year-old Ryan.
Ryan's been waiting for a mission since he passed basic training eight months earlier.
Ethan is his target. A privileged California boy, who likes computers and chess. He makes easy prey for school bullies, but his grandma runs a billion dollar crime syndicate in distant Kyrgyzstan.
Ryan expects to enjoy the California lifestyle in a routine operation. But he's in for a shock, as his mission starts turning into one of the biggest in CHERUB's history.
