As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS. Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's bestselling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as three nonfiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the bestselling British work of military history, he is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers and he continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities. www.andymcnab.co.uk

Reviews

Gr 7 Up-In this sequel to Traitor (2005) and Payback (2006, both Putnam), teenagers all over the world are strapping on explosives and blowing up important sites. Special Ops in England knows that someone named Black Star is behind the suicide bombings, and the only way to catch him is with a seemingly disaffected youth who wants to join his Angels of Death. Enter Elena and Danny, two initially reluctant teen Ops who are vital to the covert plan. When they travel from London to New York City, the stakes are even higher because suddenly the teens are on their own in a strange city. What a ride! The "spy ops" employed are fascinating, including the complex system of leaving "dead letter box" messages and the complex method of exchanging items, called brush exchanges. Most importantly, the excitement of the story will keep even the most reluctant readers going until the end. However, it helps to be familiar with the previous books as character motivations are not always clear without the backstory.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
