It's Lee Child for younger readers--Cherub meets Jason Bourne, a surefire winner for fans of Robert Muchamore and Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider books.

He's already proven himself by saving the American president's daughter from terrorists in Bodyguard: Hostage.

    Good but not great

    I enjoyed this book but I was left wanting a bit more. Worth reading / listening if you like Chris's work

    In Africa only the strong survive. Teenage martial arts expert Connor Reeves is tasked with protecting a foreign ambassador's family on safari. Considered the perfect assignment, the holiday turns to hell when their convoy is ambushed by gunmen. Fleeing through the bush, Connor and his assigned family become the prey in a shoot-to-kill hunt across the African plains. As they fight for their survival, Connor realizes the gunmen are the least of their problems.

    The best of the series so far

    Great, fast paced action thriller and the best of the series so far!
    Definitely not just for teenage boys.

    A prequel and new entry point in the best-selling Bodyguard series. Fame makes for an easy target. Ash Wild is the most successful teen rock star in history. Millions of fans adore him. But one fanatic wants him dead. Surf champion and top bodyguard recruit Charley Hunter is assigned to protect the superstar on his sell-out US tour. But Ash isn't pleased to discover his new bodyguard is a girl.

    Worst book ever. Unrealistic plot.

    Tedious characters. Seems like it would be OK for a 12 year old. Glad it was a 2 for the price of 1.
