Product description

Fourteen-year-old Alex is back at school, trying to adapt to his new double life … and double homework! But the MI6 have other plans for him. Investigations into the deaths of two of the world’s most powerful men have revealed one link: both had sons attending Point Blanc Academy – an exclusive school for rebellious rich kids. Run by the sinister Dr Grief and set high on an isolated mountain peak deep in the French Alps, Point Blanc is a world of its own. Armed only with a fake ID and a new collection of disguised gadgets, Alex must infiltrate the academy and discover the truth about what is happening there. But the secret that Alex uncovers goes way beyond his worst nightmares. Can he alert the world before it’s too late?

    This book is really good. I have listened to the book being read on an app called Audible. The book had lots of mystery and I would be wondering what was going to happen next.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes the Alex Rider books.

    Wonderful book. I think the details were wonderful especially the line, “As all spies and agents know, routine is the one thing that can get you killed.”

    A brilliant book about a reluctant teenage spy and in this book is… a masive cliffhanger ending.

    good so far. Wonder how it ends

    If you liked the other Alex Rider books ,you’ll love this one.I did.It has a twist as Alex has to have a fake identity and go to a school for rich ‘hooligans’.

    This book is definately better than the book scorpia.And you will love it even more if you enjoy the simple pleasures of school life combined with mystery.

    Good but not as good as the first

    What I liked about this book was that it was IMPOSSIBLE to guess the evil villans plot thus being impossible to put it down. Very original.

    Utterly Brilliant, if you think Anthony Horowitz had run out of ideas from the previous Alex Rider book, Think AGAIN! Shockingly brilliant and inventive. I wish I didn’t have to go to school so I could read this all day every day! LOVED IT!
