The very first CHERUB adventure is about to begin ...
Summer, 1940. Hitler's army is advancing towards Paris, and millions of French civilians are on the run. Amidst the chaos, two British children are being hunted by German agents. British spy Charles Henderson tries to reach them first, but he can only do it with the help of a twelve-year-old French orphan.
The British secret service is about to discover that kids working undercover will help to win the war. For official purposes, these children do not exist.
About the Author
Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He was inspired to create the CHERUB series by his nephew's complaints about the lack of anything for him to read!
'It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying... Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct.' -- Daily Telegraph 20090207 Muchamore's plain, punchy, often funny style ... is highly effective... This clever, tense novel is a great way of getting bored boys interested in history. -- Amanda Craig, The Times 20090228 This book was un-put-downable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better! -- Aaron, 14, First News 20090220 'Gripping and compelling' -- - Carousel 20090220
