Secret Army (Henderson's Boys #3)
Britain, 1941. The government is building a secret army of intelligence agents to work undercover, gathering information and planning sabotage operations. Henderson's boys are part of that network: kids cut adrift by the war, training for the fight of their lives. They'll have to parachute into unknown territory, travel cross-country and outsmart a bunch of adults in a daredevil exercise. In wartime Britain, anything goes.
'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.' (The Escape) -- Amanda Craig, The Times 'It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying...Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct.' (The Escape) -- The Daily Telegraph 'Mixes espionage and gritty realism when dealing with children in the midst of a war' -- Waterstones Quarterly, March 2009 'This book was un-putdownable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better.' (The Escape) -- Aaron, 14, First News Praise for books in the CHERUB series: 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.' -- The Sunday Express
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 complaint about the lack of anything for him to read!
