Crocodile Tears is an Alex Rider adventure by Anthony Horowitz that sees teen spy Alex, who works for Britiains M16, use his wits and cool gadgets to stop the bad guys.


The Story

Crocodile Tears: An Alex Rider Adventure feels like something you’d find in the daily news, 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.


We loved this book – fast-paced with plenty of hi-jinks to keep you flipping the pages. The author does a great job of maintaining the suspense and the kick-ass action is so visual as to be easily imagined.
