  • Product Description


    It has the feel of something quite big and satisfying... Muchamore's voice is fresh and direct. (Daily Telegraph)

    Muchamore's plain, punchy, often funny style ... is highly effective... This clever, tense novel is a great way of getting bored boys interested in history. (Amanda Craig, The Times)

    This book was un-put-downable. It gripped me from start to finish, and was just as good as the CHERUB series, if not better! (Aaron, 14, First News)

    Gripping and compelling (- Carousel)

    A must-read for all teenagers. (Woman's Way)

    A high-octane read that kept me on the edge of my seat. (Daily Express)

    My favourite book is One Shot Kill... it is full of adventure and excitement. -Charlie Weeks / 11 yrs old (The Abingdon Herald)

    Book Description

    The sixth adventure in the Henderson's Boys series: find out how CHERUB began!

    This is book 6 in Muchamore's Henderson's Boys series. You could read this book as a stand alone book, but I wouldn't recommend it. On it's own this would be very good book. Taken as part of the series it is a truly exceptional book and one of the best pieces of modern fiction I have read. This is because the series as a whole allows for a great deal of character development, and jumping in towards the end you would miss some of this, and well as some of the background information on the story.

    This book begins with Rosie dropping into occupied France. Muchamore started writing for boys, but the strength of his female characters is amazing, making this a perfect book for girls who want a story with something more than vampires and snogging. Rosie is wonderfully crafted character who breaks traditional female stereotypes. Rosie's mission doesn't go to plan but she soon finds herself in possession of notebook with details of a new weapon that may turn the tide of the war back in Hitler's favour. This may be CHERUB's most important mission to date. As soon as the details of this notebook come to light, Marc, Luc, Paul and Sam begin training as snipers in a nasty contest between the youngsters to see who will be chosen for the mission. Henderson will be going as well and we will see old friends from previous volumes as well as a few new ones, but I will keep the details limited to avoid any chance of spoilers. I will only add one small fact - the weapon featured in ths book is not fictional, it was being developed by the Nazi's at this time.

    This book is written in Muchamore's usual fast moving high action style. There are no lulls in this book - or good places to stop reading for the night - meaning I had to finish it the first night.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Lost the plot 7 Dec. 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I have generally enjoyed the HB series because of the historical detail and the tension of life under the Nazi regime, but the last 2 books, One Shot Kill and Scorched Earth, have been a lot less gripping. Instead of a satisfactorily rounded plot, we have a series of skirmishes with the enemy in which our heroes always triumph whilst displaying increasingly unlikely skill with weapons and explosives. The characters have become generic teens and the constant references to bodily functions and hormonal lusts is irritating in the extreme. We know the author hit on a great wheeze to make the protagonists seem like real teenagers, but that was 18 books ago and it now reads like padding to disguise the lack of plotting

    2.0 out of 5 stars Going downhill 14 May 2013
    By Jack
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I quite liked the first few books in this series - just like CHERUB, but grittier, with higher stakes. This book, I felt, was not an improvement. The point of Henderson's Boys was to train child spies, but in this book they're just child soldiers. Sure, they've had to act violently to defend themselves in the past or sabotage a key location if the opportunity arises, but now they are being trained to drop behind enemy lines with the purpose of killing people. I personally don't like this swing from the credible espionage situation to the blatant murder kids that they've become, but I suppose it's just my opinion.

    I generally like Muchamore's writing style (currently reading the second CHERUB series and really enjoying it) but in this book the pacing felt a bit off - kind of jittery. It leads me to think that this book may have been rushed, as there are a few incidents of names getting mixed up - like a person answers a question when they're supposed to be unconscious. If you're into the series, I suppose you have to read this, nut I think it's gone a bit down hill.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This series gets better and better. 24 Nov. 2012
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I love ww2 fiction, funnily enough it's few and far between so imagine my joy when I stumbled across this series on book three, its brilliant, espionage, danger, explosions all set in the theatre of war, some disturbing scenes would not be suitable for younger readers (as stated on reverse) but ultimately that was the reality of war and out of respect to the fallen we shouldn't gloss over certain aspects.
    Get it, from book one and enjoy the world of the Hendersons boy's trilogy, you won't regret it. Also check out Craig Simpsons resistance.

    This message will self destruct......

    My 12 year old son started with the Cherub series and when that was finished he romped through the HB series. Bedtime lights out are challenging as he says "but I'm at a good bit" the thing is he's always at a good bit! Thoroughly recommend.

    One shot kill doesn't pack the punch that The Prisoner did, but it's a good edition to the series, and I look forward to reading scorched earth

    Didn't expect anything less from this book. Must read for fans of the Henderson Boys already, for any newcomers - you should definitely give this one a try.
