Urban Outlaws Series

by
  • (3 reviews)

    Urban Outlaws by Peter Jay Black is a gripping action series for readers 12+, and fans of fast-paced adventures like Alex Rider and Cherub.

    Jack, Charlie, Slink, Obi and Wren are the Urban Outlaws - five quick-thinking, super-skilled kids who live to right society’s wrong. Like modern-day Robin Hoods, they steal from the rich to give to the poor, with missions meticulously planned from a bunker in London. But the gang's technical know-how gets them in too deep as they uncover secret technologies that pose serious threats. Suddenly, they are involved in high-level cyber espionage, the stakes are high and they have enemies everywhere...

    The first Urban Outlaws book was published in 2014 and there are now five books in the series, which we recommend reading in order, although the books will work as standalone.

    All the Urban Outlaws books in order:

    Book 1: Urban Outlaws (2014)
    Book 2: Blackout (2015)
    Book 3: Lockdown (2015)
    Book 4: Counterstrike (2016)
    Book 5: Shockwave (2016)
