Black ops. Jungle kill by Jim Eldridge

Jungle Kill by Jim Eldridge. Pub. Egmont, 2010.

War action at its best in language that is easy to handle and in large print with short sentences, short paragraphs and short chapters. Ideal for the reluctant reader with plenty of hooks to keep them reading.

Mitch is a young Brit. with experience in the SAS. he is forced to resign after an operation in Iraq goes wrong and he had a violent disagreement with his platoon leader. Now he has to gain the trust and bond with five other professionals as these elite soldiers battle their way in Nigeria.

The  special  Black ops unit has to free a politician with plans to end the oil wars in Nigeria. The war in Africa is a dirty war and this novel highlights all the serious wrongs of these wars and the devastating effects that it has on the ordinary people.

Total action all the way and a positive ending. For reluctant readers from Intermediate through to junior secondary.

Boys in particular will love this series.
