The first thrilling episode in the Sean Yeager series.

Fans of video games, movies and comic books will love this book.

Set in a near real world where things go wrong despite the hi-tech gear. A group of agents and commandos called the Foundation engage in a hi-tech chase after a villain who has stolen DNA and designs for robots and advanced weapons. As the story develops a sub-plot of alien and sentient computer influences is revealed.

Here is an announcement from the head of The Foundation:

This is the Brigadier, don't just sit there jump to it! Krankhausen's on the loose again and we need your help to track him down. While you're at it find out what's so special about this Sean Yeager. You may borrow a Foundation vehicle, but Professor Quark wants it back in one piece, do you hear? Oh and keep Mrs Yeager at arm's length, she's still upset about her missing husband. Don't involve the police either they're not too keen on our carrying weapons ever since we blew up that island, I mean building. Yes you can call in the commandos if you need them, but don't vaporise anything or anyone important. I've a very prestigious opera gala to attend and I could do without any embarrassing questions. Still here? Call yourself an agent?

'Rocket-fuelled mayhem that keeps you guessing to the last page.'
'A roller coaster ride of surprises.'

Alex Rider will soon be a star in his very own TV series! 

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
