Sixteen boys in a remote boarding school are suddenly all acting well-behaved and studious, but something's not right. Full of heart-pounding adventure, this sequel to "Stormbreaker" is a thrill ride and mystery all in one.
When an investigation into a series of mysterious deaths leads agents to an elite prep school for rebellious kids, M16 assigns Alex Rider, fourteen-year-old reluctant spy, to the case. Before he knows it, Alex is hanging out with the sons of the rich and powerful, and something feels wrong. Very wrong. These former juvenile delinquents have turned well-behaved, studious--and identical--overnight. It's up to Alex to find out who is master-minding this nefarious plot, before they find him. The clock is ticking--is Alex's luck about to run out?
