Cherub No.3: Want to know what it’s like to be in a high security prison in the US? Well this will tell you as it is as James and a fellow Cherub infiltrate the system in order to get to the heart of their latest assignment. There’s plenty of realistic adventure, action and excitement together with some fine writing. 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

Maximum Security. Part of the Cherub Series by Robert Muchamore

The CIA have been hunting Jane Oxford, an international weapons dealer, for thirty years. Her only weak point is her son, Curtis. It's a job for CHERUB.

Over the years, CHERUB has put hundreds of criminals behind bars. Now, for the first time ever, they've got to break one out.

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.

See a video of Robert talking about his book People's Republic.
