The second in the Boy Soldier series by Andy McNab, this is just as good as the first. Now hiding in Spain, Fergus and Danny are discovered and have to return to England to prove Fergus' innocence and try to reveal Fincham's true nature and save their lives. We get to see a lot more of Marcie Deveraux and her true intentions and motivations behind helping out the gang in the first book and we see further into her cold-blooded killer persona. And now there are teenagers blowing themselves up all over England and nobody knows why. This is the start of another great new mystery that is going to be continued in the third book.
These books are well written and fast paced, the plots have many plot twists along the way that leave both characters and reader reeling. The characters are suprisingly believable for the genre, teens that take on criminals and assasins can often cross the line over into the ridiculous but this stays reasonably realistic. Good young adult book.
