Crocodile Tears (Alex Rider Book 8)
In the eighth book in the number one bestselling Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz, Alex meets international do-gooder Desmond McCain. But a simple card game between them rapidly leads to a duel to the death - one that could result in the destruction of an entire country.
The Alex Rider series of books by Anthony Horowitz have been firm favourites of teens since the first book, Stormbreaker, exploded onto the scene in 2000. After nearly 20 years of fighting crime and getting into all manner of dangerous situations, Alex Rider still remains one of the most popular children's book heroes.
