Format: Paperback
The 4th book in the series is every bit as good as the others, if not better. With cars, girls, money and trouble around every corner as the basis of every great spy story this book has got those bases covered. And alongside this are the odd details that give the CHERUB series that special touch to seperate them from other child spy stories - the down to earth points that make the story all the easier to relate to.
Even if you don't do anything else this afternoon then you should get this book!
(Recommend it to your local library, that way more people can read it and you can save the world 1 tree at a time)

There isn't many good teenage boy series out there that actually tell a story, instead of just mindless shootings and killings, but Cherub does, the plot is fast paced, the characters loveable and although the story little unrealistic the books in this series are utterly addictive! And as although this is primarily a boys series, I am a girl and have loved every single book though and though. In The Killing the mission seems routine, but it turns into anything but. If you liked the previous books then you will love this one.

Just in case of any confusion here is the order of the Cherub Series

2. Class A
3. Maximum Security

I enjoyed reading this series. Each book was very well written. A really interesting concept. Lots of action in each book and we also get to know all of the main characters really well.. .

If you haven't read the Henderson's Boys books - which tells us how CHERUB came into being - then I suggest you really do. Again an excellent series of books, as long as you can forgive some basic mistakes which with proper research would have made a good series into a great series.

Prompt service, book in excellent condition. Our 13 year old is utterly enthralled by this series, he read The Killing in two days, starting on a Sunday. Keeps him away from the x-box, so any book that wins over the xbox is a fantastic book. We have bought him the entire series - all second hand. Nice pre-xmas present!

My son read the first two books at school and he loved them so much I bought the first 4 so I could read them too and he could continue to read the series. Really good story, my only concern is my son is 10 and I think there is a bit too much teenage content for my liking and I am surprised these were on a primary schools reading list but that is not the book or the authors problem.

The first three books were brilliant page turners but this one wasn't as good. I was very disappointed as I thought it would be better. I also thought it was a bit short or maybe I'm just a fast reader. I would definitely recommend the first 3 books of the series though. Overall, good but could have been a lot better.

Maybe he isn't the greatest super hero, but Robert Muchamore's creation of the hero of our books, James Adams, is a figure many teens can relate to; this is the marvel that has made the series such a hit. Every kid dreams of being a spy, thanks to the Alex Rider series that proved that, but we could never relate to Alex, he was special, trained since birth, spoilt; but James Adams is just an every day kid, beloning to a secret government branch called CHERUB. Where children from 10-16 spy for the government and aim to put the criminals behind bars.
The Killing is a thrilling adventure with James Adams going undercover with fellow cherub Dave Moss, the mission is to discover how a small time crook is suddenly flashing big bucks. But all changes as a link is made to an eighteen year old boy who may know the truth, the only problem, the boy fell from a rooftop died a year earlier.
This stunnning novel will keep you reading until the small hours of the day.

these books were found to be written very well , fired the imagination for a child taking the next leap into reading alone. He could not leave them alone untill book finished and started the next. Read 4 in a row.
