Muchamore’s plain, punchy, often funny style … is highly effective… This clever, tense novel is a great way of getting bored boys interested in history.,

About the Author
ROBERT MUCHAMORE was born in Islington in 1972. As a teenager he dreamt of either becoming an architect, a photographer or a writer. On discovering that architects have to train for seven years and after quitting his Saturday job in a camera shop, he saved up enough money to buy a word processor and set his heart on writing. The only problem was, he didn’t know what to write. So, he found a regular job and spent thirteen years as a private investigator. He was inspired to start writing again by his nephew’s complaints about the lack of anything decent to read. Robert’s CHERUB and Henderson’s Boys series are bestsellers around the world. Robert grew up listening to mix tapes sent to him by his older brother, developing tastes for indie bands like Joy Division, The Pogues and The Smiths. The idea for Rock War came from seeing that many of Robert’s fans turned up at book signings wearing the logos of long dead rock bands, and a realisation that his online fan forum had more kids talking about the X-Factor than about his books.
