Alex Rider, Book 3: Skeleton Key
Fourteen year old Alex Rider has just finished two missions for MI6 when he finds himself grabbed for a dangerous adventure to save the world. This time he will team up with the American CIA to stop a man whose only remaining reason to live is to see his beloved Russia dominating the world. Alex is going to have to move fast to outrun the bullets and the sharks. A fabulous series for middle school and upper elementary readers, boys especially, who want the thrill of the chase and the danger and all in the hands of someone pretty close to their own age. James Bond read-alike but action is the visceral thrill.
