Book Description

1 April 2005 Alex Rider
Reluctant MI6 agent Alex Rider is relaxing in the south of France until a sudden, ruthless attack on his hosts plunges him back into a world of violence and mystery - and this time, MI6 don't want to know. Alex is determined to track down his friends' attackers, even if he must do it alone. But it's a path that leads to a long-buried secret - and a discovery more terrible than anything he could have imagined.

Amazon Review

Anthony Horowitz's fourth fictional foray into the world of British spy agency MI6, Eagle Strike, sees teenage sleuth Alex Rider once again fighting ingenious villains and charming every girl he meets. Eagle Strike, starts out calmly enough with Alex and his lovely companion, Miss Sabina Pleasure, on holiday with her family in the south of France. But before you can say Goldfinger, he spots his old nemesis, renowned assassin Yassen Gregorovich, on the beach. Alex discovers a plan so diabolical that it makes all of his previous adventures seem like a stroll in the Queen Mother's garden. Alex must fight to keep Gregorovich from executing the plans of a mysterious and murderous madman--an operation code-named "Eagle Strike". He will just have to face down a few minor complications first: a virtual reality game that inflicts real pain; a fleet of Porche 911 GT3-driving hit men; and even a near-fatal brush with death aboard the most famous aircraft in the world, Air Force One. Eagle Strike, as with all the other ridiculously fun Alex Rider adventures, is a pure pleasure from start to finish. Even the most reluctant of readers won't be able to resist Alex's Bond-like ingenuity and charisma. Anthony Horowitz is a master of pacing, and as Alex swings from one cliff-hanging chapter to the next, Horowitz proves that you don't have to be Shakespeare to pen a crackerjack plot. --Jennifer Hubert, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alex Rider - The new James Bond? 20 April 2003
By A Customer
Eagle Strike is the fourth book in the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. Alex is a truly wonderful creation. He is the person every schoolboy in the world wants to be. Each of Horowitz's books is twice as good as the last. Horowitz has excelled himself yet again with another fantastic book.
In " Eagle Strike" Alex is still only fifteen but has already had three life changing adventures that involved poison gas, clones and ultimate world domination. This time Alex Rider is on the track of multi-millionaire Damian Cray. When he sees contract killer Yassen Gregorovich visit Cray he suspects the worse. When MI6 refuse to look into it, Alex decides to investigate, with or without their help.
Fate also leads Alex to his destiny. But does he like what he finds?
Tension, atmosphere and suspense unite in the adventure of a lifetime. Enter Alex's world of spies, gadgets and murder in this superb book. It will take your breath away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eagle Strike 21 Aug 2007
By scorpia
I think that Eagle Strike is brilliant for the action,suspense,explosive adventures,missions and interesting ending. Eagle Strike is the first book I read and it was much better than I expected. If you are a 10 year old hooked on video games and your mother tells you to read start with Alex Rider.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eagle Strike 5 April 2003
By Rachel
After reading Anthony Horowitz previous Alex Rider books, this one offered just as much excitment as the previous ones. This time Alex must save the world by himself, with no help from MI6. He discovers a link with a Damian Cray, celebrity, human rights campaigner and creater of a new computer console, who, like in the other 'baddies' in the previous books, wishes to influence the world with 'Eagle strike'. Alex's lack of gadgets is slightly disappointing, or rather the use of them, but the amount of action makes up for this. His friend from Skeleton Key, Sabina Pleasure, offers yet more action and is key to the plot. Nail-biting chapters, excitment and action bring this book together to offer a wonderful read - well up to the standard of Anthony Horowitz. A revalation about Alex's past offeres a shocking ending and hopefully an invitation for another book in the series! Hurrah!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a book! 27 Jun 2004
By Sam C
This book is amazing! After the first three you think it can't get any better but, wow how does Anthony Horowitz do it! You can't put it down just like the rest of them! It ends with a cliffhanger (of course) which leads it cleverly into the next book! The entire series is brilliant! But one minor warning: YOU WILL NEVER PUT IT DOWN 'TILL YOU'RE FINNISHED!

3.0 out of 5 stars Yet another one! 5 Jun 2003
Having read this book in less than two days i put it down feeling slightly dissappointed. Having read the other three before i couldnt help but feel that this one was really quite similar. Horowitz is certainly an excellent writer and the book is very good but his Alex Rider series is becoming a bit repetitive. However the story line is very good and the quality of writing is great. Perfectly enjoyable for a quiet afternoon or a long plane flight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can They Get BETTER!!! 31 July 2003
WOW! Yet another brilliant story from the wonder that is Horowitz. His writing technique and imagination is absolutely FANTASTIC & this book is certainly not an anti climax from the other three. Alex Rider, Teenage Superspy, has to save the world by himself! How will he do it, and will he save his 'girl'! Read to find out! One thing is for sure - Horowitz needs to write another!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Incredible Eagle Strike 9 Sep 2003
By Mike
Eagle strike is the latest and best adventure in the gripping Alex Rider series. This time, daring teenage spy, Alex Rider must infiltrate popstar and human rights campeigner Damien Cray. It begins quite suddenly when Gregorrovich attacks Alex's friend Sabina Pleasure. Alex has 90 minutes to save the world with no MI6 and nothing but a bike and cycle gear. It has even more chases, action and adventure than it's prequels plus a auprising twist at the end. Eagle strike has to be the best book Ive ever read and I would recommend this book to anyone who likes action and adventure!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Alex Rider Books 17 July 2005
This is definetly the best Alex Rider Book, it combines action with adventure. I felt it really hard to put down and most of the time I was so nervous and couldn't stop reading.
The reason this is better than the other Alex Rider Books (even though they are all good) is because of its amazing finale and the fact that the villain could be a celebrity. It also leaves you thinking about his motives and were they actually that bad.
The worst bit is, at the end you don't have a clue what is going to happen next and I had to wait a year for Scorpia.
I would reccomend this for teenagers because it is more enjoyable than Artemis Fowl and more action than Harry Potter. I think any book by Antony Horowitz is great for encouraging teenagers to read because they are as good as any movie!

Eagle Strike is a OK book and I'm being kind when I say that. I think that this series, aiming to be a bit realistic sucks as it is definitely OTT. P.S. I am a kid l.
