Eagle Strike is a so-so book. The book is okay if you like happy endings. I read through the whole book hanging off the edge of my seat and wanting to turn the page to see what would happen next. The conclusion of the story was disappointing because the day was impossibly saved by the most unlikely person. The way the story was written made me feel like I was inside the book battling the assassins with Alex. Anthony Horowitz was very descriptive and did a simply marvelous job writing this book. However, I think he kind of lost it at the end. Otherwise, it was a great book that will have you reading for hours. Throughout the book, Alex battles his way to find out who is responsible for trying to blow up his friendís father while he is working in his rented beach house. Alexís friend, Sabina, is trying to find out why her dad was nearly assassinated. Little does she know that Alex is an undercover spy that works for M16. After Alex tracks down assassins, he is forced to fight with bulls and is nearly killed, all at the tender age of fourteen. He finds out that a super rich pop star named Damien Cray is the one behind all this craziness. Damien is the last person you would think of to hire assassins to kill millions of people. His unrealistic plan called eagle strike, is to stop drug trafficking all around the world. Eagle strike has been in the planning stages for over 4 years now. He gives lots of money to all kinds of charities as a cover. Damienís parents were also killed in a bizarre accident when they were walking beside a car garage and a car rolled on top of them and killed them instantly. Because of Crayís inheritance from his parents, he overnight becomes wealthy and powerful. He starts to use his riches for evil against anyone who dares to publicly denounce him or disobey him. To find out what eagle strike is all about and why it has got to be stopped, you have to read the book. This book is not for you if you are the type of person who does not like happy endings where every thing works out perfectly. Most of the stunts and close calls seemed to be impossible. They were stunts not even a grown man could do, much less a fourteen year old boy. So, if you like happy endings, then go to the library and check this book out. If you are like me and donít like the perfect ending, then donít even bother with this book. To find out what Damien Crayís plan entails, you will have to read the book and see for yourself.
