Leon is a small-time crook who's ridden his luck for three decades. When he starts splashing big money around, the cops are desperate to know where it came from. They call in CHERUB, a secret organisation with one essential advantage: even experienced criminals never suspect that children are spying on them. James' latest mission looks routine, but the plot he begins to unravel isn't what anyone expected. And the only person who might know the truth is a reclusive eighteen-year-old boy. There's just one problem. The boy fell to his death thirteen months earlier.
A new cover look for the number one bestselling CHERUB series! In the fourth title, a routine operation for James turns into a much more deadly mission ...
'An excellent start to a promising series. It is every boy's wish to be a spy, and this book will enthrall every single one of them.' - The Bookseller 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.' - The Sunday Express 'An exciting, swiftly moving tale' - School Librarian 'A fast-paced action thriller, which should turn into a fantastic series - if James manages to live that long.' - Young Post
