Mad Dogs from the CHERUB Series is “Punchy, exciting, glamorous”

indexGang warfare gets gruesome in the eighth book of the CHERUB series, which Rick Riordan says has “plenty of action.”

In Mad Dogs, CHERUB agents are highly trained, extremely talented—and all under the age of seventeen. For official purposes, these agents do not exist. They are sent out on missions to spy on terrorists, hack into crucial documents, and gather intel on global threats—all without gadgets or weapons. It is an extremely dangerous job, but these agents have one crucial advantage: Adults never suspect that teens are spying on them.

In Mad Dogs, the British underworld is controlled by gangs. When two of them start a turf war, violence explodes onto the streets. The police need information fast, and James has the contacts to infiltrate the most dangerous gang of all…

‘Punchy, exciting, glamorous and, what’s more, you’ll completely wish it was true.’ — Sunday Express ‘Crackling tension and high-octane drama.’ — Daily Mail ‘A really good book that you could re-read over and over again.’ — Guardian ‘Pacy writing, punchy dialogue and a gripping plot, it’s got it all.’ — Daily Express ‘Fast-moving action … and cool gadgets!’ — The Times

“If you can’t bear to read another story about elves, princesses or spoiled rich kids who never go to the toilet, try this.” according to The Ultimate Teen Book Guide. “You won’t regret it.”

About Robert Muchamore

Robert Muchamore was born in Islington, London in 1972. He still lives there, and worked as a private investigator up until 2005 and the critically-accepted release of Maximum Security.

The Hunger Games phenomenon is part of the huge YA / Children’s book explosion that has grown, thanks to the British Rat pack of YA authors, Anthony Horowitz, Robert Muchamore, Mark A Cooper, Joe Craig and Charlie Higson. We owe much of the hunger games sucess to authors like Robert.

Robert was inspired to create the CHERUB series by his nephews’ complaints about the lack of anything for them to read. CHERUB: The Recruit was Robert’s first book and won the Red House Children’s Book Award 2005 in the Older Readers Category.

Following the last book in the CHERUB series, it was revealed that a trilogy would be released starting from August 2011 that will focus on a new set of CHERUB agents centred upon Ryan Sharma and also involve an sixteen year old Lauren Adams. The first book will be called People’s Republic.
