Bodyguard: Recruit (Book 1) By CHRIS BRADFORD
Penguin Random House Books
Regular price $8.99
A new action-packed adventure series for young fans of Alex Rider and Jason Bourne–with the first four books publishing simultaneously. Binge read for summer!
Teenage kickboxing champion Connor Reeves is determined to do his father, a former special forces soldier, proud. Recruited into the ranks of a top-secret young bodyguard squad known as Guardian, Connor trains in surveillance, anti-ambush exercises, hostage survival and unarmed combat. Whatever it takes to prepare him for the dangerous missions ahead.
But nothing can prepare Connor for his first assignment when the US president summons him to protect the First Daughter. For not even the Secret Service knows that a terrorist sleeper cell has been activated in America. Its mission: to take the president’s daughter hostage.
Combining pulse-pounding action, diabolical enemies, and an insider’s knowledge of the tricks of the trade, the BODYGUARD series is the perfect target for fans of Alex Rider, James Bond, 24, and Jason Bourne.
