The truth about Alex Rider’s past lies with the criminal organization known as Scorpia, and Alex must make a choice ... continue to work for MI6 or betray everything he believes in.


  • Will last for ever as one of the children's classics of our age.

    The Times

  • So exciting that at times you forget to breathe.


  • The fifth book in the series and I think the best yet ... filled with lies, betrayal and so much danger.

  • Anthony Horowitz has created the best version of a schoolboy spy. The fights and chases are outstanding. I can always imagine myself in Alex's shoes.
