Maximum Security

Book 3

By Robert Muchamore

CHERUB: the number one bestselling spy thriller series for kids.

The third title in the number one bestselling CHERUB series! James has to bust an inmate out of a high-security US prison ...

Over the years, CHERUB has put plenty of criminals behind bars. Now, for the first time ever, they've got to break one out ...

Under American law, kids convicted of serious crimes can be sentenced as adults. Two hundred and eighty of these child criminals live in the sunbaked desert prison of Arizona Max. In one of the most dangerous CHERUB missions ever, James Adams has to go undercover inside Arizona Max, befriend an inmate and then bust him out.

CHERUB kids are trained professionals, working in everyday situations. Their essential advantage: adults never suspect that children are spying on them.

For official purposes, these children do not exist.
