The Lovereading4Kids comment
The fourth, thrilling episode in the number one bestselling Alex Rider series. Reluctant teenage super sleuth Alex Rider fights clever and ingenious villains and meets plenty of pretty girls whilst trying to decode a secret operation of a madman named Gregorovich. Every chapter is left on a knife edge, perfect for reading mad 9+ year olds and terrific for getting reluctant readers reading.
