Anthony Horowitz

Yes, I think the title fits the book well. This name is also the name of the terrorist organization who's major areas of activity include Sabotage, CORruPtion, Inteligence, and Assasination. Notice that the capoitol letters spell out SCORPIA. That is why they named the orginization this way. Their world success has made them a powerful force that the national inteligence agencies cannot keep up with. The whole focus of the book is this organization because Alex believes it is his destiny to find them, thanks to a message from a dying man who knew his father. Now that he has found SCORPIA, he thinks he will get all the answers he has been searching for his whole life. Alternate titles would not do this book justice. The title Scorpia is dramatic and all encompassing of the main idea of the story. The title could also be "Invisible Sword" because that is the name of the project SCORPIA is working on right now. This title wouldn't be as much about the major plot of Alex finding out who he is, but it might work. Scrippatori would also be an interesting title, grabbing people's attention to read the book because they don't know exactly what it means. The word is actually the name for theives in Italian, explained in the second chapter, but, again, this doesn't pertain to the big picture. Scorpia is the perfect title to describe the whole book.
