Terrorism, heroism and everything in between...

THE TRAP is a teen thriller about espionage, a missing brother and the ever-raging war on terror by million-copy-selling author, Alan Gibbons.

MI5 agent, Kate, receives a tip-off about an asset, who seems too good to be true. Amir and Nasima are trying to make friends at their new school but struggling to keep a terrible secret. A group of jihadists are planning something. And behind it all stands Majid. Brother. Son. Hero. Terrorist.

Spanning Iraq, Syria and England, THE TRAP grapples with one of the greatest challenges of our time.

A wonderfully fast paced, thrilling insight into one of today's most pressing issues, THE TRAP is as good as it gets in British teen fiction. I'm a big fan of Alan's work, and this is one of his very best. Authentic and unflinching, it is a novel you have to read. An excellent new work from a great writer.
