The fourth adventure in the Henderson's Boys series: find out how CHERUB began!
German submarines are prowling the North Atlantic, sinking ships filled with the food, fuel and weapons that Britain needs to survive.
With the Royal Navy losing the war at sea, six young agents must sneak into Nazi-occupied Europe and sabotage a submarine base on France's western coast.
If the submarines aren't stopped, the British people will starve.
Robert Muchamore was born in Islington in 1972 and spent thirteen years working as a private investigator. He loves Arsenal and watching people fall down holes. He hates swimming and getting chased by cows.
He was inspired to start writing by his nephew`s complaints about the lack of anything for him to read!
The CHERUB series has now become a number one bestseller in several countries.
