Synopsis

Agent 21 by Chris Ryan

Some authors just write about it. Chris Ryan has been there, done it and lived to tell the tale. Agent 21 is the first in a brand-new action-packed adventure series by the real-life SAS hero. When Zak Darke's parents die in an unexplained mass murder he's left alone in the world. That is until he's sought out by a mysterious man: 'I work for a government agency,' the man tells him. 'You don't need to know which one. Not yet. All you need to know is that we've had our eye on you. There's a possibility you could help us in certain ...operational situations.' Zak becomes Agent 21. What happened to the 20 agents before him he'll never know. What he does know is that his life is about to change for ever...

Reviews

Boys are less likely than girls to read for fun so it is even more important their books are gripping from the off. This one certainly is -- Natasha Harding The Sun SAS hero Chris Ryan sets a cracking pace for this story of school boy Zak Darke's recruitment by a government agency Love Reading Ryan draws on the same knowledge which made his series of SAS-themed books such a success and is set to follow up his previous popularity among both adult and younger readers Sheffield Star The ensuing plot is well paced and exciting enough to keep even seasoned fans of the genre interested ... Agent 21 shows a lot of promise bookzone4boys.blogspot.com This one hits the ground running and does not let up until the end, and I cannot imagine even the pickiest teen reader finding anything uncool about a story concerning such a topical - and dangerous - issue myshelf.com


About the Author

Chris Ryan

Chris Ryan was born in 1961 in a village near Newcastle. In 1984 he joined the SAS. During his ten years he was involved in overt and covert operations and was also Sniper team commander of the anti-terrorist team. During the Gulf War, Chris was the only member of an eight-man team to escape from Iraq, of which three colleagues were killed and four captured. It was the longest escape and evasion in the history of the SAS. For this he was awarded the Military Medal. During Ryan's last two years in the Regiment he selected and trained potential SAS recruits, he left the SAS in 1994. His work in security takes him around the world.
