A terrific new series for teen boys who want something that bridges the gap from Anthony Horowitz and Charlie Higson to authors such as Chris Ryan and Andy McNab. This, the first in the series is a high-octane, adrenalin-fuelled combat adventure series – a real page turner and sure to get readers hooked on the series.

Thrown out of the SAS, Mitch thought his days as a Special Forces soldier were well and truly over. But when he is approached by an undercover unit embarking on a dangerous mission to rescue a West African freedom fighter, kidnapped by a gang of ruthless bandits who will stop at nothing to get what they want, he must make a choice. But is Mitch the right man for the job? Can he secure the trust of the men in the undercover unit, and step back into the danger zone? Perfect for boys looking for a gripping, aspirational read.
