Maximum SecurityBook - 2005
The third title in the number one bestselling CHERUB series! James has to bust an inmate out of a high-security US prison ...
Over the years, CHERUB has put plenty of criminals behind bars. Now, for the first time ever, they've got to break one out ...
Under American law, kids convicted of serious crimes can be sentenced as adults. Two hundred and eighty of these child criminals live in the sunbaked desert prison of Arizona Max. In one of the most dangerous CHERUB missions ever, James Adams has to go undercover inside Arizona Max, befriend an inmate and then bust him out.
CHERUB kids are trained professionals, working in everyday situations. Their essential advantage: adults never suspect that children are spying on them.
For official purposes, these children do not exist.

SummaryAdd a Summary
James is on a new mission with Dave and his sister Lauren. The mission focuses on Jane Oxford, an international arms dealer who has been untraceable for as long as she has been on the FBI's most wanted list. But then they come across a breakthrough: Jane's 14-year-old son Curtis Oxford has been jailed for murdering three innocent people after getting drunk. He is being held at Arizona Youth Maximum Security Prison. The Americans ask a favor from CHERUB, an organization with one essential advantage: even experienced criminals do not expect kids to be spying on them. The plan is for James and Dave to be sent into the prison undercover, then to break out with Curtis, hoping that Curtis will lead them to his mother. However, after a prison fight, Dave is injured and taken to hospital, leaving James alone on the mission. Soon James and Curtis escape with the help of Lauren. Later, they meet up with Jane Oxford. Jane wants James dead, so she sends her men to execute him but he beats them. Soon, the FBI arrive to arrest Jane.
