Alex Rider is on the wrong side of the world - and the law. Alone in Sydney, he is recruited by the Australian government to infiltrate an organized people-smuggling ring: the violent criminal underworld of the Snakeheads. Working undercover as a refugee he moves to Bangkok, where he meets someone he can finally trust - a fellow agent and true friend: or is there any such thing in the poisonous world of espionage?

Reviews

Gr 5-10-Alex Rider is in for another wild ride in Anthony Horowitz's latest title (Philomel, 2007) in this popular series. The story opens as Alex splashes down in Australian waters at the conclusion of his space-age espionage triumph in Ark Angel (Philomel, 2006), convinced he wants nothing more than to return to London and a "normal" life. However, he's recruited by the Australian Secret Service. Paired with a mysterious and vaguely sinister godfather he never knew he had, Alex uses his considerable wits, karate talents, and plain old good luck to take on the Snakehead, a Southeast Asian criminal group allied to Scorpia, his old nemesis. He thinks he's investigating international refugee smuggling but is thrown headlong into a bomb plot to create another South Seas tsunami capable of killing tens of thousands. Master narrator Simon Prebble gives each character an appropriate and distinctive voice; his voicing of Alex perfectly reflects the story's action. His impeccable pitch, diction, and tone make for a flawless rendition. Listeners need not be familiar with the previous titles in the series. An enjoyable international espionage thriller, expertly read by a rare talent.-Jane P. Fenn, Corning-Painted Post West High School, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

The seventh book in the Alex Rider series reveals all the secrets: Scorpia, Alex's parents, uncle and his dark past. Although the gadgets and themes that underlie this series does become a bit repetitive, Horowitz's style does not. He blends action with drama to create a teenage 007 that we all want to be. This seventh book in the series sees Alex develop and mature as the eponymous protagonist in this series. A must-read for all Rider buffs.
