Summary

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.

Great read for children who like a bit of action.

Adventure and suspense. I read this along with my 12 year old and it was interesting to see how much they pick up when reading and listening.

Great overall

I loved every minute! I couldn't stop listening to it.
I think the performance was good, and the accents were great. I would recommend this and the whole series to tweets/teens and fans of Alex Rider.

I love this series!

I continue to enjoy the storylines and character development of this series. It was amusing as an American listening to someone with a British accent trying to sound like an Arizona western cowboy drawl. The book is well-paced and the narrator does a very good job. I again look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Most Enjoyable

One of the most enjoyable in the Cherub series. I thought this was very inventive and enough of a similar plot, but enough diversion to keep it fresh and interesting.
