A comic tale of gangsters, first love and the crooked path to the straight and narrow: Mercedes Bent is trying to go straight - if only her family weren't so crooked. Mercedes has carved herself a nice little niche at the Daphne Pincher Academy for young ladies, running a sweepstake and taking bets on anything that moves. The only fly in the ointment is her arch-rival, gangster's daughter, Harley Spinks. How come she's got the great work placement and Mercedes has ended up in a boring bank? But things start to look up when Mercedes wangles a date with the bank's hottest young trainee, Zak - until she finds out that it's not just the Spinks gamg who are into dodgy dealings: her own brothers are as crooked as a pair of corkscrews too! It's a safe bet that Mercedes will have to keep her family's illegal acitivities under wraps - if she's to have even an outside chance with the boy of her dreams.

The world’s greatest teen spy is back in action in a thrilling new mission: destroy once and for all the terrorist organization SCORPIA. Americans may have purchased more than 6 million copies of Alex's adventures, but now, more than ever, we all need his heroics.

Following the events of Scorpia Rising, Alex relocates to San Francisco as he slowly recovers from the tragic death of his best friend and caregiver, Jack Starbright, at the hands of terrorists working for SCORPIA. With Jack gone, Alex feels lost and alone, but then, out of the blue, he receives a cryptic email--just three words long, but enough to make Alex believe that Jack may be alive. Armed with this shred of hope, Alex boards a flight bound for Egypt and embarks on a dubious quest to track Jack down.

Yet SCORPIA knows Alex's weakness. And the question of whether Jack is alive soon takes a backseat to a chilling new terrorist plot--one that will play with Alex’s mind as he grasps the magnitude of what is at stake.

From Egypt to France to Wales, from luxury yachts to abandoned coal mines, Alex traverses a minefield of dangers and cryptic clues as he fights to discover the truth. The #1 New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne, is back with a vengeance!

Praise for Never Say Die

"Once again amid races, chases, hails of bullets, and increasingly spectacular explosions, the teenage James Bond pulls off one awesome feat of derring-do after another. [This] fresh caper . . . roars along to a (naturally) explosive climax."—Booklist

"In his usual breakneck fashion, Horowitz whisks Alex from one improbable situation to another . . . this installment is sure to please Alex's legions of fans."—Kirkus Reviews
