 Skeleton Key (Alex Rider Adventure) - Anthony Horowitz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Alex is armed only with a few specially designed gadgets, which are disarmingly age-appropriate: a Gameboy that doubles as a Geiger counter, a cell phone whose aerial shoots out a drugged needle that is activated by pressing 999, a Tiger Woods figurine that doubles as a small grenade when its head is twisted just so.
Here Alex sniffs out a plot by a Chinese triad and saves the Wimbledon tennis tournament, surfs a monstrous wave and survives a deadly attack by a Jet Ski�and that's just in the first few chapters, before the main plotline kicks in, concerning a Russian general who is in possession of a nuclear bomb.
Alex even acquires an admiring girlfriend in between escapades, to make his character even more Bond-like; but this is a pretty chaste relationship, and the gore is relatively minimal, too.

Alex was always strongly encouraged by his uncle to indulge in extreme sports like martial arts and scuba diving.

The Alex Rider series reaches its sixth book and so loses a lot of its charm and originality from the earlier books.Ark Angel seems to be Horowitzs attempt to turn this cult classic into a blockbuster, with more high speed action but slightly less attention payed to plot and character developement.

Leading from this as Alex encounters an "Eco-friendly" terrorist group with a less than normal leader, a Russian billonaire and finally reaches "new heights" in the final chapters, the book is impossible to put down.
