Packed with action, intrigue - and skydiving! - DropZone is an extreme thriller for teens
Ethan Blake is seventeen and desperate to escape from his dead-end life. When he sees someone B.A.S.E. jump from the top of his block of flats, it changes the way he sees the world for ever.
Soon, Ethan is caught up in the adrenaline-fuelled world of skydiving. He's a natural, so it's no surprise when he's invited to join an elite skydive team, but is he signing up for more than just jumping out of planes?
The team's involved in covert military operations - missions that require a special kind of guts, missions so secret even MI5 denies all knowledge.
Andy McNab was a member of 22 SAS Regiment and was involved in both covert and overt special operations worldwide. 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. He wrote about his experiences in two phenomenal bestsellers, Bravo Two Zero
, which was filmed starring Sean Bean, and Immediate Action
Besides his writing work, he lectures to security and intelligence agencies in both the USA and UK.

McNab is brilliant at describing the exhilarating feeling of falling from an airplane at 12,000 feet.
