Alex is back and even better than before!, 14 Oct 2001
Alex Rider the reluctant teenage spy is on his second mission in a sinister school in the French Alps. I have to recommend this book to everyone who read Stormbreaker. This time Alex has even more ingenious pieces of equipment, more twists in the plot, tons more action and it's just brilliant. (There's also a funny bit with a crane, a barge and some drug dealers)
A must read for anyone who read any of Anthony Horowitz books and enjoyed them, especially teens.
