Alex Rider will soon be a star in his very own TV series! 

Alex Rider is an orphan turned teen superspy who's saving the world one mission at a time—from #1 New York Times bestselling author! 

A charity broker con artist has raised millions of dollars in donations, only to invest them in a form of genetically modified corn that has the power to release an airborne strain of virus so powerful it can knock out an entire country in one windy day. A catastrophe so far-reaching that it would raise millions of dollars more in charitable donations, all of which would be embezzled by one man. The antidote? Alex Rider, of course, who survives gunfire, explosions, and hand-to-hand combat with mercenaries—just another day in the life of an average kid.

From the author of Magpie Murders and Moriarty.

Editorial Reviews


[Horowitz] knows how to pace a thriller and delivers one exciting scene after another.
