Publisher Comments:

When Alex Rider crash-lands off the coast of Australia, the Australian Secret Service recruits him to infiltrate one of the ruthless gangs operating across Southeast 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 the knowledge that his old nemesis, Scorpia, is anything but out of his life.

Robert Smith, November 30, 2010 (view all comments by Robert Smith)
Another adrenaline pumping story from author Anthony Horowitz. Snakehead is the second to last book in the series and in my opinion is the best. It has some of the best dialogue and heart pumping action in the series. The story is constantly twisting and turning with many cliffhangers and unexpected events. It is one of the best action and adventure books I have ever read. In Snakehead Alex Rider must once again take on the criminal organization known as Scorpia. One of the original founders, who owns the largest criminal gang in Australia and Eastern Asia, plans to cause a global catastrophe and eliminate thousands of people. Only this time, Alex is not working for M-16 or the CIA, or alone. This book is probably in my top five favorite books, and I would recommend it to any fan of the series.
