Scorpia Rising by Anthony Horowitz

This is a bit of a doorstop at 431 pages but a great read. Maybe Simon or Hamish would enjoy this author. You don't need to have read the preceding novels to understand or enjoy it. Mrs P has some of his books on her side of the double unit too. I think Sean has read some of them. Alex Rider is a series of spy novels, by British author Anthony Horowitz about a teenage spy named Alex Rider. The series is aimed primarily at young adults but some students in the unit would handle them okay.This gripping final mission brings together Alex Rider's old enemies to frame the teenage superspy in an unstoppable plot of revenge, from which he can never return. Pursued from Europe to North Africa and Cairo's city of the dead – this is the twistiest and most deadly plot of any Alex Rider mission yet, and will reveal Smithers' ultimate gadget and see the shocking death of a major character.
