Review: Crocodile Tears: An Alex Rider Adventure


Crocodile Tears: An Alex Rider Adventure (#8)

by Anthony Horowitz

We loved this book! It was a great thriller. It kept the boys in our home turning page by page! Absolutely recommend! It was released last month so it is available in your local stores now. Great, fun read over the holiday break!

Alex Rider is a reluctant teenage spy who works for Britain’s MI6 and unlike James Bond, does not have a license to kill.  Instead, he uses his wits and cool gadgets to incapacitate the bad

guys.  Crocodile Tears: An Alex Rider Adventure (#8) feels ripped from the headlines, with a charity broker con artist raising millions of dollars in donations, only to invest them in a form of  genetically modified wheat that has the power to release an airborne strain of virus so powerful, it

can knock out an entire country in one windy day – a catastrophe so far-reaching that it would raise millions of dollars more in charitable donations, all of which would be embezzled by one man. The antidote? Alex Rider, of course, who survives gunfire, explosions, and hand-to-combat with mercenaries – just another day in the life of an average teen super-spy kid.
