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...
