The stakes are higher than ever for teen super-spy Alex Rider in this bestselling thriller.
“Every bored schoolboy’s fantasy, only a thousand times funnier, slicker and more exciting … genius.” — The Independent on Sunday

Alex is determined to track down his friends’ attackers, even if he must do it alone. But it’s a path that leads to a long-buried secret – and a discovery more terrible than anything he could have imagined. Alex Rider has 90 minutes to save the world.
