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.
