Have you ever wanted to be a spy, a top secret agent, or James Bond? Most teenagers do, but for Alex Rider, it’s a lot more complicated than it sounds. I read Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz. This was the fourth book in a seven book series. Alex is an actual spy for the British Intelligence Agency, or MI6. The book starts off with Alex and his friend Sabina vacationing in southern France. Everything was going swimmingly until Alex sees his arch nemesis, Yassen Gregoravich, walk of a yacht near the house he was staying at. After following him, and stealing his cell phone, Alex calls a private number that belongs to Damian Cray. Cray is an international pop star dedicated to saving the earth. Just as Alex calls this private number, the house blows up and Sabina’s father, who was writing an article on Cray, is badly injured. Alex gets extremely suspicious when a pop star somehow ties in with a contracted killer. Meanwhile, In Holland, Cray has an institute to make a new video game software called Game Slayer. What no one knows is really it’s a top secret hideout for a devastating attack. Alex finds out that Cray wants to take out all the drugs in the world by stealing Air Force One and activating all the United States’ missiles to bomb all the drug locations. The missiles will kill millions but Cray thinks he’s doing everyone a huge favor. Alex must stop Cray, deactivate the missiles, and save himself and millions to save the world, again. I thought this book was well written, and there’s always an ending that’s crazy! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense and action, or who wants a good quick read.
