Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What goes up must come down, and when we last saw Alex Rider, he was as up as can bein outer space. When he crash lands off the coast of Australia, the Australian Secret Service recruits him to infiltrate one of the ruthless gangs operating across South East Asia. Known as snakeheads, the gangs smuggle drugs, weapons, and worst of all, people. Alex accepts the assignment, in part for the chance to work with his godfather and learn more about his parents. What he uncovers, however, is a secret that will make this his darkest and most dangerous mission yet...and that his old nemesis, Scorpia, is anything but out of his life.

From the slums of Bangkok to the Australian Outback to the middle of the Timor Sea, Snakehead is Alex Riders most action-packed adventure yet.

Review:

"The convoluted plot, nearly constant action, and clever gadgets will intrigue readers as Alex crosses the world, and Ash reveals new information about Alex's parents and their untimely demise. Satisfying escapism for series fans or series newcomers." Booklist

Review:

"Next time a young adult reader sits down to watch Dr. No or Goldfinger, hit the off button and hand him/her this book instead." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

While not as good as his first ones, "Snakehead" is still an exceptional book full of action, suspense, and suprisingly, drama. One can only wonder whether we will see another adventure of the teenage heart-throb hero, or whether Horowitz has closed the book on an AMAZING series.
