When I first started this website my aim was to promote different authors and series of books, things that you might not have heard of before. It has been successful, so much so that some of the most popular series seem to have been forgotten. So here we are, at long last, a page dedicated to the "granddaddy" of spy book series... the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz
The first book in the series was published in 2000. Over NINE MILLION copies of the book have been sold. It has been made into a blockbuster film. Think a young James Bond type character and you won't be far off.
"They told him his uncle died in an accident. He wasn't wearing his seatbelt, they said. But when fourteen-year-old Alex finds his uncle's windshield riddled with bullet holes, he knows it was no accident. What he doesn't know yet is that his uncle was killed while on a top-secret mission. But he is about to, and once he does, there is no turning back. Finding himself in the middle of terrorists, Alex must outsmart the people who want him dead. The government has given him the technology, but only he can provide the courage. Should he fail, every child in England will be murdered in cold blood."
There are 10 wonderful books in the series.
