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

hosts plunges him back into a world of violence and mystery.

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 friends 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
