The world’s greatest teen spy is back in action in a thrilling new mission: destroy once and for all the terrorist organization SCORPIA. Americans may have purchased more than 6 million copies of Alex's adventures, but now, more than ever, we all need his heroics.

Following the events of Scorpia Rising, Alex relocates to San Francisco as he slowly recovers from the tragic death of his best friend and caregiver, Jack Starbright, at the hands of terrorists working for SCORPIA. With Jack gone, Alex feels lost and alone, but then, out of the blue, he receives a cryptic email--just three words long, but enough to make Alex believe that Jack may be alive. Armed with this shred of hope, Alex boards a flight bound for Egypt and embarks on a dubious quest to track Jack down.

Yet SCORPIA knows Alex's weakness. And the question of whether Jack is alive soon takes a backseat to a chilling new terrorist plot--one that will play with Alex’s mind as he grasps the magnitude of what is at stake.

From Egypt to France to Wales, from luxury yachts to abandoned coal mines, Alex traverses a minefield of dangers and cryptic clues as he fights to discover the truth. The #1 New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne, is back with a vengeance!

Praise for Never Say Die

"Once again amid races, chases, hails of bullets, and increasingly spectacular explosions, the teenage James Bond pulls off one awesome feat of derring-do after another. [This] fresh caper . . . roars along to a (naturally) explosive climax."—Booklist

"In his usual breakneck fashion, Horowitz whisks Alex from one improbable situation to another . . . this installment is sure to please Alex's legions of fans."—Kirkus Reviews

      I recently finished the book, and I thought "Never Say Die" was amazing! With a new plot and mystery with every word it will keep you reading past your bedtime. Like all the Alex Rider books, Alex is pushed into working with MI6 again, resilient as always Alex disobeys Mrs.Jones orders and goes on his own mission, to rescue Jack. With new villains/antagonists and dangers this is my 3rd favorite Alex Rider book in the series. I give this book 5/5 stars, and recommend it for kids 10+. You should read the other books in the series to understand the plots in the new book. More thrills and action this new addition to the series will not leave you disappointed! My favourite Alex Rider book is Point Blanc. I hope you enjoy the "Never Say Die" book as much as I did! (PS. FOR ALL YOU DIE HARD ALEX RIDER FANS I HAVE A THEORY THE NEXT INSTALMENT WILL BE "NIGHTSHADE") Your fellow bean_boy12
