About the Author

Anthony Horowitz is a popular and prolific children's writer, whose books now sell in more than a dozen countries around the world. He has won numerous prizes for his books which include "Raven's Gate", "Ark Angel", and "Skeleton Key" (Winner of the Red House Children's Book Award). Anthony also writes extensively for TV. He lives in North London.


Gr 7-10-Fifth in the series of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider Adventures (Philomel, 2005), Scorpia picks up where the previous book, Eagle Strike (Philomel, 2004; Recorded Books, 2005), left off. The 14-year-old schoolboy secret agent finds himself in Venice after he hears the words of dying assassin Yassen Gregorovich: "Go to Venice. Find Scorpia. And you will find your destiny." So he travels to Venice with his friend Tom to foil the evil plot of Scorpia, a terrorist organization, to kill thousands of London children and to discover his dead father's identity. Insinuating himself into the good graces of Julia Rothman, one of Scorpia's evil executives, he makes his way down a tortuous path of sinister doings and deeds that leads to the explosive ending Horowitz fans crave. Narrator Simon Prebble, a veteran of British stage and radio, narrates this gripping adventure story with charm, gusto, and poise. Through his voice, Alex comes to life as a schoolboy, spy, and adventurer. An excellent addition to teen collections.-Larry Cooperman, Seminole High School, Sanford, FL Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Featuring high-speed chases, death-defying stunts and man-eating tigers, this brilliant adventure ends with a fabulous (and controversial!) cliffhanger: Up there with Artemis Fowl and Harry P. * The Independent * If you were to ask a boy aged between 8 and 12 who his greatest fictional hero is, the answer would probably not be Harry Potter, but Alex Rider. * The Times * Will last forever as one of the children's classics of our age. * The Times *

The fifth entry in the Alex Rider Adventure series by Anthony Horowitz, Scorpia follows 14-year-old Alex to Italy, after he learns that his father was an assassin for a criminal organization, and the teen gets swept up in a murderous scheme of his own. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
