Note: this novel contains graphic scenes of warfare.

A high octane, action-packed adventure which will grab readers attention from the opening plane drop and right on into the heart of the bloodiest of conflicts. Black-Ops soldiers Mitch, Two Moons, Gaz, Tug, Benny and Nelson work undercover. Their secret military squad, operating under the code name Delta Unit, has a deadly mission. Somehow they must get through the fighting in Afghanistan with an undercover peace negotiator in their midst. With danger never far away, it is frightening stuff and realities of war are brought vividly to life. This is the second in the Black Ops series – the first is Jungle Kill - and perfect for teens who have moved on from the Alex Rider titles for example.
