9780141323022: The Devil's Breath: Danger Zone

He doesn't need Alex Rider's girly gadgets. He's much more fanciable than Andy McNab's Boy Soldier. His adventures will take you to places even Wilbur Smith hadn't thought of.

Soon after escaping an assassin that bursts from the shadows to try and kill him in the dark windswept grounds of his school in Dartmoor, Max Gordon discovers that his explorer father has also gone missing. Max is determined to find him whatever dangers may lay in his path. A secret clue, that his father has left, leads Max to the inhospitable wilderness of Namibia and the discovery of a potential massive ecological disaster masterminded by the very powerful and completely ruthless businessman, Shaka Chang. Whoever is behind Max's fathers disappearance is determined to get rid of Max too. For good.

The Devil's Breath is the first incredible book, in a blockbuster new adventure series for boys and girls of 9+ , with more plot twists and death defying action scenes than a Bond film. A world of stampeding buffalo, lethal scorpions, ancient tribes and prophecies awaits you...

Review:

'David Gilman's debut The Devil's Breath is a lot of fun . . . the relationship between the two boys provides thrills and spills and the eco angle will go down well. What Gilman, a successful scriptwriter, does superlatively is heart-pounding action.' (Amanda Craig The Times)

'David Gilman's The Devil's Breath takes no hostages in an exciting fast paced story that never lets up.' ( Indepedent)

The most exciting and unusual blockbuster adventure series for 8 - 14 year olds since Young Bond (Pokemon World)

A rip-roaring ride of an adventure (School Library Journal)

The start of an awesome adventure...fantastic. (National Geographic Kids)

Pre-teens and young teenagers looking for rousing and adventure and non-stop cinematic action will enjoy THE DEVIL'S BREATH. (Infodad.com)
