Publisher's Summary

Tough enough? Smart enough? Max will require all his skills just to stay alive as a Special Forces Cadet.... 

A top-secret government programme needs a crack team of undercover military operators. They must have awesome levels of determination, endurance and fitness. They must be able to think on their feet. The recruits undergo the most rigorous and testing selection process the modern military can devise. And in order to operate in circumstances where adult forces would be compromised, the recruits must be under 16. Only a few are tough enough and smart enough to make it. And once out in the field, they will require all their skills just to stay alive. Which is what happens when Max Silver, Abby Asher, Lukas Channing and Sami Hakim are sent into an armed siege in an inner-city school....

From the best-selling author of Strike Back, Chris Ryan returns with a new action-packed series.

Excellent Voice

Loved the voice reading by Dan Morgan. Would recommend! Story was an easy listen and the characters accents were brilliantly nailed. I'm going to be looking up more reads done by Morgan!

An unusual Chris Ryan book

This book did not follow the usual Chris Ryan adventures. The story lacked reality though the theme was credible. I was also disappointed that it was much shorter than his other books.

Excellent short story

Very good performance and story. After about 30 minutes I realised that it was probably aimed at teenagers but I couldn’t stop listening!

Great entertainment!

The narration was fabulous! All the accents and character development were really strong. The story plot was a little to easy to work out early (even some of the hoped for ‘shock reveals’, but this did not deter for a hugely enjoyable listen. The suspense was so well handled even if one could sometimes guess the outcome. On with the rest of the series… 👍🏼☺️

loved it

I'm sure this book is aimed at young adults but as a much older adult I can say I thoroughly enjoyed it and have bought the next 2. I reccomend it!

A great military action story

An older children's/young adult's book... but very well written. appropriate for 12+ and absolutely riveting. Just the right amount of action and story progression. Great character development
