About this deal

Bad guy wants to know how much Mi6 knows about his dastardly scheme, (wasting quite a long time doing it, I might add) and this is how Alex ended up hanging on to the handles of a pole with 2 or 3 hungry crocodiles snapping at his buttocks.

When his uncle is murdered in the first novel, Alex is recruited by the agency for both his talents and his age—because who would suspect a 14-year-old of being a spy? In the eighth book in the number one bestselling Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz, Alex meets international do-gooder Desmond McCain. The job is meant to be free of major risks, but this proves far from the truth when Alex discovers that the manager of the charity is also there, and seemingly involved in a conspiracy.I appreciate that it would be much better for him to read the books but the good side is that I got him the earlier audios and the later books, not yet on audio. Normally the 8th book in a series doesn't turn out well, but Anthony Horowitz was successful in his comeback. I liked all of Alex's near-death experiences in this volume, particularly because it would be SUPER hard to survive them. Given that this is so, how come no one, including the ever-brilliant Rider, ever thought of hooking their legs onto the pipe to take most of their weight?

but alas, Im stuck with a different plot but the same exact concept as most of the books in this series. He works for an Indian Intelligence Agency hell-bent on taking revenge on the bad guy for orchestrating the bombing in India.He goes to a New Year's Eve party hosted by the rich businessman Desmond McCain, founder of the charity First Aid.

For the uninitiated, and with the books selling in the millions of copies so I can't believe there can be many of those left, Alex is a fourteen year old boy who lives in London and sometimes works with MI-6, Great Britain's version of the CIA. So, originally, Indian spy wants to bomb bad guy’s plane, but since he’s passed out and all, Alex figures he won't mind if he steals his bomb and uses it to destroy a dam to drown all the wheat crops. I’m plowing through them at a rate of one a month this year so, since it is August, this must be the eighth book in the series. Alex ends up winning the game, and twenty-five thousand pounds, but decides to donate all the money he wins to First Aid (which McCain's charity).In Anthony Horowitz's latest action-packed Alex Rider adventure Crocidile Tears, Alex finds himself looking at a possible wrecking ball to his struggle for a normal life that goes by the name of Harry Bulman.
