Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz

SnakeheadSnakehead is the seventh title in the Alex Rider adventure series and it does not disappoint.  In this gem, Alex gets called into duty by the Australian Secret Service.  He only, and reluctantly, agrees to help them because it will allow him to work with his godfather, a man he never before knew existed and from whom Alex desperately wishes to learn more about his deceased parents.  There are terrible secrets associated with all this which Alex only finds out after a most dangerous mission traipsing all over Southeast Asia.  Snakeheads are the violent and morally reprehensible gangs operating in that area who smuggle drugs, weapons, and people. 

Alex’s adventures this time take him into killer boxing rings, into a locked container car on a cargo ship, into a body parts-for-sale business in which Alex’s own are in jeopardy, into a below sea level bomb set to cause massive tsunami destruction plot, and into association with really evil people.  What more can possibly happen to this young teen?  I hope we find out someday with book 8.  This series is recommended for 5th grade and older.

    I don’t know if there’s an 8th book yet–I know that we don’t own it yet. As soon it comes out, though (if it ever does), we’ll order it.
