Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz
Published by Walker, 2003

Another book in the Alex Rider series Eagle Strike complements titles like Skeleton Key, Stormbreaker and Point Blanc by Anthony Horowitz. Alex Rider, a 14-year-old junior James Bond style hero and a secret agent with M16 is enjoying a holiday like any ordinary young adult when a ruthless attack on his hosts plunges him back into a world of violence and mystery.

Alex is convinced that the creator of the latest state-of –the-art games console, Gameslayer, Damian Cray is behind the attack.

Alex has a hard job convincing M16 that celebrity Damian Cray who incidentally happens to be a human rights campaigner is one of the gang of his friend’s attackers.

Alex vows to pursue his friends' attackers even if he has to go it alone. In his pursuit he unearths a long buried secret and a terrible discovery that he could not have imagined possible.

Children who have already read the exploits of Alex Rider will not be disappointed with the latest offering of adventure, excitement and suspense mixed with characteristic Horowitz wit, all of which they will find in this book

Eagle Strike is available from the Senior Fiction children's bookstock of Clare County Library branches.
