Product Description

Alex Rider is in Venice, looking for secrets long-ago buried in the past. Was his father really a ruthless assassin? And if so, what does that make Alex?

The trail leads Alex to a shadowy criminal organisation, Scorpia – and the glamorous Italian home of Claudia Rothman, beautiful society hostess and criminal mastermind. But Claudia reveals a secret that takes Alex’s breath away: his father was murdered by MI6. Now Alex must make a choice. Should he carry on working for MI6, who have manipulated and betrayed him? Or will he join Scorpia – and seek revenge?

Anthony Horowitz started writing because he wanted to be like Tintin. He has now travelled to all the places that Tintin has been – apart from the moon!

His Alex Rider series is one of the most popular children’s book series ever, and the first Alex Rider book, Stormbreaker, became a major Hollywood film. In 2003, Anthony won the Red House Children’s Book Award (voted for by children) for Skeleton Key.

He is also the author of the highly acclaimed Diamond Brothers detective stories, as well as the bestselling The Power of Five books, which were inspired by a simple thought. “Isn’t it more exciting to imagine these great battles with all their magic and mystery happening in the very high street where you live, just out of the corner of your eye?”

Anthony lives in central London with his wife Jill Green, a TV producer, and their sons Nicholas and Cassian. His whole family gets involved in his writing. Jill has produced several of Anthony’s scripts, including the drama serial Foyle’s War, which won the Lew Grade Audience Award in 2003. His son Cassian is already a seasoned actor, having appeared in three of his shows, and Nicholas, his oldest son, has helped Anthony to research the Alex Rider books by trying his hand at everything from scuba-diving to snowboarding and surfing!

In 2013, Anthony was awarded an OBE for services to literature..

    This book is as amazing as the rest of the series but it is full of suspense as Alex gets to know the truth about his father and how he was actually a MI6 agent. Absolutely amazing.

    The introduction to scorpia in this book could not be shown any less exciting than this. Mrs.Rothman, the head of scorpia, is out to get all the children in Britain by injecting dangerous drugs in them.

    This book is a thrilling installment of the alex rider series. This adventure will take alex from the safety of England into Venice, a seemingly nice town. This book will dig deep into alex’s past as he finds out the truth about his father. I would recommend this book!
