Product description

The storming mission that primed Alex for world domination. Imitators? Fail. There’s only one Alex Rider. When this story starts, he’s just a normal fourteen-year-old kid. He doesn’t yet know how to defuse a bomb, or how to win at hand-to-hand combat. Then the doorbell rings in the middle of the night. Bad news: Alex’s guardian has been murdered. Now Alex is being recruited into MI6 as its youngest ever spy. That’s how it all begins. And by the end of this book, Alex will face his first utterly evil villain: mad, bad and very dangerous to know…

  • First in Anthony Horowitz’s blockbusting spy series
  • 007 meets Boy’s Own in a gadget-packed mission
  • A pioneering book that has spawned many imitators
  • Perfect for kids who want gripping, fast-paced reads

“The perfect hero… genuine 21st century stuff.” Telegraph

“Pure class, stylish but action-packed.” Daily Mirror
