14-year-old Alex Rider is an English spy who goes to work for the CIA. His assignment is to observe an exiled Communist general who is holed up in Cuba with a nuclear bomb. The gifted Simon Prebble keeps this potentially unbelievable story from straining credibility. Since characters span the globe, his diverse skills are constantly in demand. The evolving story and spiraling suspense are perfectly rendered. Best of all, Prebble is always young Alex when the role demands. The book jacket accurately proclaims, "Skeleton Key will keep even the most reluctant reader glued to the headphones." S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
