Ryan is about to board a plane, knowing that the next twenty-four hours will change everything. His mission is to stop the biggest terrorist attack America's ever seen.
Ryan works for CHERUB, a secret organisation with one key advantage: even a trained terrorist won't suspect that a teenager is spying on them.
For official purposes, these children do not exist.
Twelve-year-old Ryan is CHERUB's newest recruit. He's got his first mission: infiltrating the billion-dollar Aramov criminal empire. But he's got got no idea that this routine job will lead him into an explosive adventure involving drug smugglers, illegal immigrants and human trafficking, or that his first mission will turn into one of the biggest in CHERUB's history.
Hitler is working on his greatest weapon, and if the Henderson boys want to stop the Fuehrer they will have to undergo advanced sniper training, track down secret files in occupied France, and crack the secret code the files contain.
When an MI5 operation goes disastrously wrong, James Adams needs all of his skills to get out of Russia alive.
Meanwhile, his sister Lauren is on her first solo mission, trying to uncover a brutal human trafficking operation.
And when James does get home, he finds that his nightmare is just beginning ...
CHERUB agents have one crucial advantage: adults never suspect that children are spying on them.
The British underworld is controlled by gangs. When two of them start a turf war, violence explodes on to the streets. The police need information fast, and James Adams has the contacts to infiltrate the most dangerous gang of all. He works for Cherub. Cherubs are trained professionals, aged between ten and seventeen.
With a strong central character rooted firmly in reality, CHERUB action is believable and attainable, making this a much more credible read than many of the spy stories on the market.
Sent on a mission to stop the largest terrorist plot ever orchestrated, Ryan, a member of the secret organization CHERUB, plans a high-stakes counter-defense that depends for its success on his youthful appearance and his agency's official non-existence.
