Meltdown by Robert Rigby

Book Description

A lethal new drug with devastating side effects, known as Meltdown, is threatening to destabilize society. Dudley knows that the security services have to act fast, and when his 4 x 4 arrives at their remote hideout in the Canadian lakes, eighteen-year-old Danny and his grandfather, ex-SAS hero Fergus Watts, are once again sucked into a deadly undercover operation and a race against time. Their search for the mastermind behind a pair of murderous gangland twins takes them from the clubs of Manchester to Spain and Germany, and Danny needs all his newly learned expertise when he comes up against an old adversary - someone he hoped never to encounter again. And this time, when the battle is joined, it is a battle to the end.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » The final, exciting book in the Watts Family adventures from Britain reaches a satisfying resolution with this caper about a dangerous new drug that threatens all Europe. Now 18, Danny and his grandfather Fergus reluctantly agree to find and destroy the evildoers who are manufacturing "Meltdown" before terrorists take over the operation for their own ends. As in the previous episodes, McNab's military expertise and Rigby's writing skills combine to rivet readers' attention while the duo infiltrates the drug operation. Original villains, snafus and the resulting improvisations by the good guys vary the action and keep interest high while the tension between Danny and Fergus adds even more emotional weight. Altogether, this truly entertaining and well-written series entry will can give young readers plenty of fun and insights into real, not imaginary, military techniques. By far the best of the imitation James Bond genre. Highly recommended. (Fiction. YA) (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Robert Rigby

Robert Rigby (Author) Robert Rigby began his career as a journalist, then spent several years in the music business as a songwriter and session musician. He turned to writing for radio, television and the theatre and has also directed and performed in children's theatre throughout the country. He has become an established young people's playwright and his award-winning work with youth theatre companies has been seen in Britain, Europe, the USA and Africa. He wrote the novelizations of the movies, Goal! and Goal II, and his scripts for television include the long-running BBC children's drama series, Byker Grove.Andy McNab (Author) From the day he was found in a carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital in London, Andy McNab has led an extraordinary life. As a teenage delinquent, Andy McNab kicked against society. As a young soldier he waged war against the IRA in the streets and fields of South Armagh. As a member of 22 SAS he was at the centre of covert operations for nine years - on five continents. During the Gulf War he commanded Bravo Two Zero, a patrol that, in the words of his commanding officer, 'will remain in regimental history for ever'. Awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM) and Military Medal (MM) during his military career, McNab was the British Army's most highly decorated serving soldier when he finally left the SAS. Since then Andy McNab has become one of the world's bestselling writers, drawing on his insider knowledge and experience. As well as three nonfiction bestsellers including Bravo Two Zero, the bestselling British work of military history, he is the author of the bestselling Nick Stone and Tom Buckingham thrillers. He has also written a number of books for children. Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK, works in the film industry advising Hollywood on everything from covert procedure to training civilian actors to act like soldiers and he continues to be a spokesperson and fundraiser for both military and literacy charities. www.andymcnab.co.uk
