Product description

Another stonking Alex Rider blockbuster. Targeted by a hitman and hounded by the media, Alex reluctantly turns to MI6. But their help doesn’t come cheap. They want Alex to spy on a GM crop plant with sinister and secret connections. And when Alex spots Desmond Cain, a high-profile charity organiser, Cain realises that Alex is onto his real plans for the money he’s raising. Kidnapped and held hostage in Africa, Alex learns the full horror of Cain’s plot: to create an epic disaster that will kill millions. But when getting word to MI6 goes terribly wrong, Alex must also stop his own side before they unwittingly trigger the death of a whole nation…

    People think action books are just for boys but I really enjoyed the Alex Rider series.

    This is a totally wonderful book. It has some sad moments, but the action is engaging.

    My favourite Alex Rider book. My favourite part was in the torture place in the jungle where a crocodile is at Alex’s feet.
