Cherub No.4: Action and adventure for the Cherub agents coupled with humour and girls make this teenage spy series one that will run and run. These thrillers will be devoured by both sexes. It’s not essential to read these thrillers in order as they are stand alone novels in their own right, however once you’ve read one you’ll want to read them all anyway.

Synopsis

The Killing. Part of the Cherub Series by Robert Muchamore

When a small-time crook suddenly has big money on his hands, it's only natural that the police want to know where it came from. James' latest Cherub mission looks routine: make friends with the bad guy's children, infiltrate his home and dig up some leads for the cops to investigate. But the plot James begins to unravel isn't what anyone expected.

Reviews

'Fast-moving action ... and cool gadgets!' * The Times * 'Pacy writing, punchy dialogue and a gripping plot, it's got it all.' * Daily Express * 'A really good book that you could re-read over and over again.' * Guardian * 'Crackling tension and high-octane drama.' * Daily Mail * Action-packed adventure ... much more credible than many of the spy stories on the market * Publishing News * Praise for books in the CHERUB series: 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.' * Sunday Express * Brilliant! * Lancashire Book of the Year 2007 * The action moves at a cracking pace * The Bookseller *'

About the Author

Robert Muchamore

One of the World Book Day 2014 Authors - Read more about the WBD book Rock War Audition here.
Robert Muchamore was our Guest Editor in Feb 2010 - click here - to see the books that inspired his writing.

Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972. As a teenager he dreamt of either becoming an architect, a photographer or a writer. On discovering that architects have to train for seven years and after quitting his Saturday job in a camera shop, he saved up enough money to buy a word processor and set his heart on writing. The only problem was, he didn't know what to write. So, he found a regular job and spent thirteen years as a private investigator.

Robert grew up listening to mix tapes sent to him by his older brother, developing tastes for indie bands like Joy Division, The Pogues and The Smiths. The idea for Rock War came from seeing that many of Robert's fans turned up at book signings wearing the logos of long dead rock bands, and a realisation that his online fan forum had more kids talking about the X-Factor than about his books.
