by Anthony Horowitz
Sir Damian Cray is a super-rich pop-music singer, a political activist, and a video-game magnate. Alex Rider is a 14-year-old kid who has missed a lot of school since his uncles recent death in the line of service for MI6. Ordinarily they would have nothing to do with each other, until Alex recognizes the assassin who killed his uncle while vacationing with a friend in the south of France. Then the assassin blows up his friends father, and Alex narrowly escapes from becoming another victim, and a dropped cell phone leads him to suspect that Sir Damian Cray ordered the bomb.
MI6 isnt interested in hearing what Alex suspects. So the talented young spy, who has already saved the world three times in a matter of weeks, sets out on his own to learn what Cray is planning to do. Naturally, he finds himself running down a thin line between life and death, including a spell inside a lethal, life-size version of a Tomb Raider type video game. Meanwhile, Alex learns that Cray has a plan to end the worlds drug problem...a plan that will cost millions of lives and possibly destroy the entire planet!
What can an orphan, acting alone, do against a billionaire who can do anything he wants, no matter how evil, while believing that he is doing good? What can a boy do against the assassin who killed the only father he ever knew and who knows something about Alexs real father that MI6 never told him? How are you going to find out the answers to these questions until you read Eagle Strike? But beware: some disturbing questions remain unanswered at the end of this book. You know that the next book, Scorpia, will take young Alexs adventures to a whole new level of seriousness and danger. But once you get to the end of this book, youll be along for the ride.
