Andy is writing another young adult series – after the ‘Boy Soldier’ and ‘Dropzone’ series were well received. The new book is called ‘The New Recruit’ and is written with Andys work with young soldiers and the importance of raising literacy levels in mind. We’ll hope to tell you more about it at a later date.

The New Recruit

A young adult adventure and thriller based around army life, from bestselling author Andy Mcnab

‘What if your prank killed your best friend. Could you live with yourself?

You try to forget, and move on with your life; you enrol in Army training, you want to make something of your life. The training is tough, gruelling and it almost breaks you but you survive; you know you’ll make a good soldier.

Finally when you’re out in Afghanistan, faced with enemy fire, you come face-to-face with your best friend’s brother. He still blames you for his brother’s death and it’s clear he wants you dead. You now have more to fear than just enemy soldiers . . .

You’ve been running away for so long but now you realise that there’s no escaping your past . . . or your destiny.’
