An airliner has exploded over the Atlantic leaving 345 people dead. Crash investigators suspect terrorism, but they're getting nowhere.
A distressed twelve year old calls a police hotline and blames his father for the explosion. It could be a breakthrough, but there's no hard evidence and the boy has a history of violence and emotional problems.
The great Lauren controversy...
This is the first time I've written a CHERUB book where Lauren gets a bigger role than her brother James.
The reason for this is that James is coming towards the end of his CHERUB career and at fifteen he was too old to go undercover.
But James is back in a starring role in The General and Brigands MC.
