Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and fan favorite Anthony Horowitz has built a huge following with his Alex Rider series.
This time, Alex is up against a con man who wants to create the biggest catastrophe he can muster to profit through a disaster-relief charity. If Alex is going to stop a genetically engineered virus from sweeping across the country, he’ll have to brave gunfire, explosions, and dangerous mercenaries—then come face to face with the deadly mastermind.


What the Critics Say

"As in the earlier installments, the book is chock-full of excitement and suspense from the first page to the last. It starts with a bomb at a nuclear plant in India, and along the way there is a charity black-tie card game, poison needles, car crashes, bullets, and exploding gel pens. Most of the backstory is explained, so no prior knowledge of the earlier books is necessary. Great for reluctant readers." (School Library Journal)

Hard to turn off

I love adventure reading, and the Alex Rider series fits in my listening library right next to Clive Cussler. I will end up listening to all of this series.

A wonderfully vivid reading.

Simon Prebble does a nice job distinguishing the voices without trying too hard to make us remember which is which. He speaks quickly to keep the pace of the story, but doesn't go so quickly as to lose the tense narrative.

As always, a fantastic story from Horowitz, and this book helped entertain me on many a long walk. A long time fan I am, and so I will remain.
