    Almost any books by Alistair MacLean. They are well-written, exciting and free from sexual themes.
    1)  Ice Station Zebra (there is a movie staring Rock Hudson and Ernest Borgnie) this is a spy novel about a stolen satelite camera that falls to earth in the Antartic
    2) Where Eagles Dare (there is also a movie staring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood), A world War II drama about identifing spies behind enemy lines
    3) When Eight Bells Toll is a story about a police undercover agent catching smugglers who have a hold of terror among the local fisherman.
    4) The Guns of Navarrone (Also with a movie staring Gregory Peck & David Niven) is about a group of allied soldiers who have to take out artillery guns behind enemy lines so ships can get in to rescue stranded soldiers.
    5) Circus: is about undercover agents who go behind the Iron Curtain as circus performers.
    All of these books are obtainable from the library and some may be available as e-books.

    I am absolutely in love with the Dirk Pitt series by Clive Cussler.  Every book starts with a thirty page non-fiction history lesson that gives the framework for the fictional story.  Dirk Pitt is a cross between James Bond and Indiana Jones, keeping the reader constantly turning pages to find out what happens next.  His books ask the questions: What happened to Hitler?  Where is Atlantis? What happened to the Aztec's gold?

    If your son is fairly mature, he may enjoy the Bourne Trilogy by Robert Ludlum.  They are a little difficult to follow and are, at times,  quite violent.  However, violence comes naturally with this genre.  The books differ from the films in that the central antagonist is a real person, Carlos the Jackel, who ran an underground crime and terrorism network.  He is currently serving a life sentence in a French prison.
