Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Millions adore him. A philanthropist. Anti-drug crusader. Peace activist. And former pop star the likes of which the world has never seen. Sir Damian Cray even has the president's ear. Yet the president's ear is not enough for Damian — he wants more. Such as the President's fingerprints. So he can manipulate computer systems only the President of the United States has access to. So he can launch nuclear missiles. From aboard Air Force One. All in the name of peace....So what if a few million lives are lost in the process? Teen spy Alex Rider survives a bullfight, a high-speed bicycle chase through Amsterdam, and even being the target in a human video-game, only to face his most disturbing challenge yet: when the best of intentions are driven by insanity, how do you reason with a madman?

Review:

"For anyone who has enjoyed Alex's previous adventures, EagleStrike will prove just as good if not better, and for those who haven't been introduced to this young spy, this book will certainly get them addicted and anxiously awaiting the next installment." School Library Journal

Review:

"Once again, Horowitz tells a tight story, and his knack for descriptive action drives readers through the very accessible plot. Teens need not have read previous Rider adventures to enjoy this one." Booklist

Review:

"It's all absurd fun that lives up to the excitement young readers have come to expect from Horowitz." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Relaxing in the South of France with his friend Sabina Pleasure and her family, reluctant MI6 agent Alex Rider is finally able to be like any other 14-year-old, until a sudden attack on his hosts plunges him back into a world of violence and mystery.

Synopsis:

Sir Damian Cray is a philanthropist, peace activist, and the world's most famouspop star. But still it's not enough. He needs more if he is to save the world. Trouble is, only Alex Rider recognizes that it's the world that needs saving from Sir Damian Cray. Underneath the luster of glamour and fame lies a twisted mind, ready to sacrifice the world for his beliefs. But in the past, Alex has always had the backing of the government. This time, he's on his own. Can one teenager convince the world that the most popular man on earth is a madman bent on destruction-before time runs out?

Synopsis:

In this "New York Times" bestseller, teen spy Alex Rider faces his most disturbing challenge yet: Sir Damian Cray, the world's most famous pop star, who's actually a madman bent on destruction.

About the Author

Anthony Horowitz is perhaps the busiest writer in England. He has been writing since the age of eight, and professionally since the age of twenty. He writes in a comfortable shed in his garden for up to ten hours per day. In addition to the highly successful Alex Rider books, he has also written episodes of several popular TV crime series, including Poirot, Murder in Mind, Midsomer Murders and Murder Most Horrid. He has written a television series Foyle's War, which recently aired in the United States, and he has written the libretto of a Broadway musical adapted from Dr. Seuss's book, The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. His film script The Gathering has just finished production. And...oh yes...there are more Alex Rider novels in the works. Anthony has also written the Diamond Brothers series.
