Snakehead by Anthony Horowitz – review

In the past, Alex Rider had needed to infiltrate a boarding school, pretend to be a member of a couple of families and track numerous people. I thought that Snakehead is a very good book.

Now, we come to what I think is the last Alex Rider book. This one was probably the first one that is a more scary mission. Alex hides under Yu’s bed while the crew searches the ship, overhearing a conversation between the major and the ship’s captain – this leads him to realize there is a traitor somewhere, for Yu already knew about Alex even from the start.
