Book Description:

Cambridge Literature is a series of literary texts edited for study by students aged 14–18 in English-speaking classrooms. It will include novels, poetry, short stories, essays, travel-writing and other non-fiction. The series will be extensive and open-ended and will provide school students with a range of edited texts taken from a wide geographical spread.

From the Back Cover:


A general who does not want to be a general

A sixteen-year-old trigger-man anticipating his first kill

A beautiful teenage girl forced to use woman's weapons in a deadly game

And the misfit son of the head of Inner Delta, a secret intelligence unit, who learns that it is possible to die more than once.

Set high on a bridge in Massachusetts, a powerful drama of patriotism and daring unfolds, where ordinary people are forced to perform heroic acts, and the innocent play murderous roles.

"A psychological thriller written in crackling prose. If any author in the field can challenge J.D. Salinger or William Golding, it is Robert Cormier."
