Point Blanc by Anthony Horowitz, 2002
Alex Rider is back in the second novel in the series. He is battling drug pushers and being manipulated by MI6. Alex is sent to a boarding school on top of a mountain in Switzerland to uncover the truth behind a series of mysterious deaths. As soon as Alex sees the abandoned ski jump, the reader knows a high speed downhill race is not far off. Alex has cool tools to help him on his mission but no one will let him have a gun. There are plenty of bad guys with guns in the story but Alex has to rely on his intelligence and wits to get himself out of trouble.
The fast pace and story action will keep readers turning the pages as quickly as they can. This series should greatly appeal to guys who like action movies and things that go boom.
