Pleasure are in plunges into the Loch Arkaig, and they are then rescued by a foreign-looking person.

In Anthony Horowitz's latest action-packed Alex Rider adventure Crocidile Tears, Alex finds himself looking at a possible wrecking ball to his struggle for a normal life that goes by the name of Harry Bulman. Rahim rescues Alex and tears up Alex's shirt in an attempt to fool McCain into thinking he was the one who was eaten by the crocodiles.

But the only reason I didn't give this five stars is because it doesn't make sense why the villain didn't kill him before it was too late (he had a thousand chances). Given that this is so, how come no one, including the ever-brilliant Rider, ever thought of hooking their legs onto the pipe to take most of their weight?

People get lucky, some do have the "devil's luck" but Alex got lucky so many times you get bored by the time you reach this far in the series.

Cool fight involving a gun, the same yucky mushroom soup, barrels of leaded oil, and a leftover explosive that Alex hadn’t used on his mission in the GM foods place, and then boom. This book, more than any of the others, really takes a spin off the James Bond 007 franchise when it opens up on Alex playing Texas Hold `em with the big baddie of the book. But while on Christmas vacation in Scotland, he meets a philanthropist by the name of Desmond McCain and manages to embarrass him at poker. but still just as bloodpumping thrilling, nail-biting exciting and pure breathless addictive as ever!I was okay with this part, other than the fact it seems quite obvious than Anthony has never really been to India. As Alex, Sabina, and her father drive home, a sniper shoots the tire of their car, causing them to lose control and crash into a loch. I don't want Alex Rider to die but seriously a little less unbelievable stuff because this gets boring after some while. In fact, the guy seems too good to be true: a champion-caliber boxer with a career-ending injury, a botched plastic surgery job to fix his face, a fortune earned in property development only to be caught in an insurance scam and sent to jail, a conversion to Christianity while in jail, even becoming a pastor, and finally founding a charity for the purpose of quickly responding to crisis areas around the globe. First off, we're introduced to Ravi Chandra, who plants a bomb in a nuclear power station and doesn't live very long.

You do not go barging into people’s houses and threaten to reveal all their dirty little secrets, especially if said people have been known to land other people in the hospital. He has an ingenious plan to create just such a crisis in Africa via bioengineered poisonous plant spores destined to kill thousands and profiting from the millions of dollars that roll into his charity. So far, what I have pictured is this: a horizontal metal pipe with handles built in like a periscope. He was first introduced to the British intelligence agency when his uncle was murdered on a mission, and Alex was recruited to go and finish the job.He uses them so effectively that made readers stop and think before continue on reading all the while bombard with words that made readers feel like they are in the shotgun position along with Alex. Alex lives the roughest life and then just to add salt to the wound, people refuse to believe him because he's only fourteen. After cutting my teeth on the hugely popular show, Robin of Sherwood, I moved on to work with David Suchet and his brilliant portrayal of Hercule Poirot, writing about nine or ten episodes of Agatha Christie's Poirot.

What drives me nuts is the bad guy always catches Alex and then proceeds to tell him exactly what he is going to do thus revealing his genius plans. During the journey, Sabina's father, Edward Pleasure, tells Alex about their host Desmond McCain: the story involves how McCain was found, as a baby, abandoned in a bag of McCain's Oven Chips (which is where his name comes from), his time as a professional boxer, becoming a property developer and MP for the Conservative Party, imprisonment for fraud, and apparent conversion to Christianity and founding a charity.

Normally the 8th book in a series doesn't turn out well, but Anthony Horowitz was successful in his comeback. Things start moving pretty slowly, and initially it seems as though once again Anthony has no qualms in boring his readers with overly descriptive passages. He has a distinct voice that makes me feel like I could pick out his writing anywhere, even if I didn't know who the author really was.
