Millions adore him. A philanthropist. Anti-drug crusader. Peace activist. And former pop star the likes of which the world has never seen. Sir Damian Cray even has the president's car. Yet the president's car is not enough for Damian-he wants more. Such as the president's fingerprints. So he can manipulate computer systems only the President of the United States has access to. So he can launch nuclear missiles. From aboard Air Force One. All in the name of peace...So what if a few million lives are lost in the process?

Teen spy Alex Rider survives a bullfight, a high-speed bicycle chase through Amsterdam, and even being the target in a human video-game, only to face his most disturbing challenge yet: when the best of intentions are driven by insanity, how do you reason with a madman?

The plot synopsis above is a terrible spoiler. It practically gives away the whole plot. Part of the suspense of the book is that it doesn't reveal what "Eagle Strike" means until near the end. The library should change this. Just use the tag line from one of the other editions: "Alex Rider has just 90 minutes to save the world!"

I loved the book. Yassen is my favorite character. I liked how he told Alex Rider the truth about his uncle. I also liked the plane fight and how Damian Cray died, that was interesting. This book is awesome!!!! as a 12 year old boy i highly recommend it.

Just finished this book, and I have to admit, I am a bit interested in spy stuff, (actually I just enjoy their super cool gadgets!) but is it just me; or is every book in this series better than the last??? I'm finishing each book quicker than the last!! I don't think I could possibly read any faster! :p

This book is my favorite Alex Rider book yet! All the books are going to be awesome though but this one was great! Though it sucks that Yassen Gregorovich dies though. He made Stormbraker and Eagle Strike really interesting. :(
