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.

The Trap Reviews

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. * Bali Rai, award-winning author *
This novel will take you to the edge of your comfort zone and beyond - a compelling, powerful read. * Cathy Cassidy, bestselling author of THE CHOCOLATE BOX GIRLS series *
Alan Gibbons has written a compelling novel of courage and conscience amidst the terrors of our time. * Beverley Naidoo, Carnegie Medal-winning author *
Gibbons has produced a high octane thriller that is totally gripping as a story but picks its way beneath the surface . . . and skilfully unwraps some of the issues * Terry Potter, THE LETTERPRESS PROJECT *
The Trap is a frighteningly contemporary young adult thriller that doesn't shy away from tackling difficult issues head on. -- Linda Wilson * Crime Review *
Alan Gibbons avoids the simplicity of a news story and looks at the complex motivations that lead good people to make bad decisions. He isn't afraid to shine an unflinching and critical spotlight on all the parties involved and show how easy it is to be ensnared by traps on either side of the issue. * The Carousel *
