About this deal

At first, I couldn't quite understand the significance of the words in bold because it seemed like unnecessary emphasis. However, as the story went on, the words in bold fit in with the character dialogue. Also having only done basic french in secondary school, I couldn't understand what Alex was saying in some scenes; there really ought to be some sort of translation somewhere. In the seventh book in the number one bestselling Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz, teenage spy Alex is forced into the Australian secret service. His target is the criminal underworld of South East Asia, and a ruthless organization known as the Snakehead. Both had an event-only demonstration place erected to demonstrate their invention (Graves had an ice palace in Iceland to demonstrate the Icarus system, whilst Cray had the Pleasure Dome).

Eagle Strike is another excellent instalment in the Alex Rider series. Alex is a believable and appealing hero and, while the situations he finds himself in are extraordinary and sometimes rather outlandish, he always manages to battle through. He’s still only 14 but Alex is maturing fast and is willing and capable to stand up to threats that MI6 shy away from. The return of Yassen Gregorovich was well done, with some lingering questions from Stormbreaker being answered and some new mysteries begun. In addition to Gregorovitch, there were a good number of thugs and henchmen for Alex to fight, with Damian Cray being a menacing if loopy “big bad”. The machinations of Cray probably place Alex, as well as the world, in the greatest danger yet faced in the series. Skeleton Key - He was sent to "work" for the CIA, originally meant to watch from the sidelines until his "family" finished their work. Elements of the first book ‘Stormbreaker’ have been woven in with the main plot of ‘Point Blanc’ to create the new eight-episode series, which introduces the world to teenage MI6 agent Alex. The strange circumstances surrounding the loss of Alex’s uncle Ian Rider (played by Broadchurch’s Andrew Buchan) are borrowed from the first book, as is Alex’s reluctant recruitment by British Intelligence. Before Alex was forced to join MI6, he wanted to be a professional footballer, but is now unsure of what he wants to do when he finishes school, once jokingly stating he wanted to be a train driver. He still does not express any interest in following in his father’s and uncle’s footsteps in becoming a full-time MI6 agent. Both have had (or at least are implied to have had) drastic surgery (Graves to hide his North Korean appearance and life, whilst Cray is implied to have had surgery, but no explicit reference is made).It is also the only novel where MI6 does not officially assist Alex during his activities, except, of course, for Smithers' gadgets. My first one is for Yassen Gregorovich." He turned to the Russian. "Why are you working for this lunatic?" Blunt had forced him into this. In the end, the big difference between him and James Bond wasn't a question of age. It was a question of loyalty. In the old days, spies had done what they'd done because they loved their country, because they believed in what they were doing. But he hadn't even been given a choice. Nowadays spies weren't employed, they were used. John was very close to Alex and Helen as is apparent by the fact that he very much missed his family when he was away working for SCORPIA. Later, he resigned from MI6 to spend more time with his his son and his wife. He was on a family vacation with his wife when his plane was bombed and he and Helen died. [15] Helen Rider
