New softcover book, first published 2004, 304 pages. Suitable for readers aged 12 and older
Keith Moore is Europe's biggest cocaine dealer. The police have been trying to get enough evidence to nail him for more than twenty years. Now, four CHERUB agents are joining the hunt. Can a group of kids successfully infiltrate Keith Moore's organisation, when dozens of attempts by undercover police officers have failed? James Adams has to start at the bottom, making deliveries for small-time drug dealers and getting to know the dangerous underworld they inhabit. He needs to make a big splash if he's going to win the confidence of the man at the top.
CHERUB is not James Bond. There are no master criminals or high-tech gadgets. CHERUB kids slip under adult radar and get information that sends criminals and terrorists to jail. For official purposes, these children do not exist.
Comment from Robert Muchamore - This is the book with many titles ... I originally wanted to call Class A 'Drugs, Cars & Guns' but my publisher chucked a mental saying that it wasn't an appropriate title for a children's book! Eventually we settled on Class A. However, the American publishers said that nobody in America would understand what Class A meant so they call it The Dealer there. Finally, a big book club wanted to buy some CHERUB books, but they didn't like the title. So there are 5,000 copies of Class A that were specially printed and called The Mission!
About the author
Robert Kilgore Muchamore (born 26 December 1972) is an English writer and author of the CHERUB and Henderson's Boys series. He started writing the CHERUB books because his Australian nephew Jarred couldn't find any books that he liked reading. He tried to write books that he would have enjoyed reading when he was 12 or 13, a time when he remembers being too old for children's books but not old enough to read adult novels.
The CHERUB series follows the life of a character named James Robert Anthony Adams (formerly James Choke), a member of CHERUB, a top-secret branch of the British Secret Service. The organisation recruits orphan children and trains them as intelligence officers. Once qualified, they are used to investigate targets ranging from international terrorists to gang leaders. As children, they are considered innocent by their targets.
So far Muchamore has written and published eleven CHERUB novels, with another one in production. Book 12, Shadow Wave, is the last book in the series and will be published in late 2010. The CHERUB series has been sold in more than 20 different countries and has won various awards. Book 1 in the series, The Recruit has won 8 literature awards.
Muchamore has also written the Henderson's Boys series - three novels about the beginning of CHERUB. The Henderson's Boys books are set during World War II and follow Charles Henderson, a British secret agent, as he creates the organisation later featured in the CHERUB series. The books feature four children: Marc Kilgour, Paul and Rosie Clarke and PT Bivott. There are 3 books in the series so far, The Escape, Eagle Day and Secret Army. A fourth book, Grey Wolves is due for publication in early 2011.
