Henderson's Boys 3: Secret Army Synopsis

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.

Henderson's Boys 3: Secret Army Press Reviews

'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.'
- Amanda Craig, The Times

It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying...Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct.
- The Daily Telegraph

'Mixes espionage and gritty realism when dealing with children in the midst of a war'
- Waterstones Quarterly, March 2009

Praise for books in the CHERUB series: 'Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what's more, you'll completely wish it was true.'
