Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Working as a secret agent for Britain's most exclusive agency, Alex Rider has seen it all. He's been shot at by international terrorists, stood face-to-face with pure evil, and saved the world — twice.

Review:

"[A] fast-paced read that certainly will make readers hold their breath until the very last page." VOYA
