Egmont, 2010. ISBN 9781405247801.
Six men! One mission! Failure is not an option!
When Mitch embarks on a dangerous mission he ends up being held captive. Escaping, Mitch ends up doing something that gets him in trouble but little did his persecutors know he was a member of the Special Forces.
This action packed book has an easy flowing plot, leading you to a front line in an African forest. Don't let the slow start drive you away from the fast-paced action within these pages. The main characters are great role models for young male readers to look up to as they show strength, skills and courage. I recommend this novel to boys thirteen and over as there are graphic scenes of warfare. I really enjoyed reading this novel. It was very exciting.
