Publisher's Summary

Leon is a small-time crook who's ridden his luck for three decades. When he starts splashing big money around, the cops are desperate to know where it came from. They call in Cherub, a secret organisation with one essential advantage: even experienced criminals never suspect that children are spying on them.

James' latest mission looks routine, but the plot he begins to unravel isn't what anyone expected. And the only person who might know the truth is a reclusive 18-year-old boy. There's just one problem. The boy fell to his death 13 months earlier.

Pretty good

Easy to tell change in characters and the emotions in their voice. However, my favorite part in this book was read poorly, which saddened me

Another Good Cherub Story

After reading about James adventures at Arizona Max, this story goes back to the streets of England to income criminal activity, what James finds is much more than anyone anticipated.

Takes a while to get going but well worth it!

As I said in the heading, book takes a while to get going but I didn't mind. Another great performance by Mr Muchamore. I always like the round off to the end of each book, with an epilogue. It sets a somewhat good tone when going onto the next book. As you (the reader) gets some closure. So far I'd say this book showed the best planning and execution to a mission that James and co had been sent on. Hopefully many more to come!

Another amazing book in the series!

The narrator is amazing and I love the way the different voices are performed- really helps you get caught up In the story. The plot itself is very entertaining as well.

Favourite book by Robert Muckamore!!!

This book is my favourite of all the cherub series and it does have an epilogue just takes 15 seconds to play at the end
