Alex Rider is a 14-year-old trained in the art of spy craft and employed by the British intelligence agency MI6. Part James Bond, part RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, this is a marvelous addition to the genre of young adult fiction, which has already spawned several spin-offs and is sure to excite interest in more books. Performed with characteristic grace and astute pacing by British actor Simon Prebble, the story abounds with nail-biting excitement as Prebble brings listeners face-to-face with the horror Alex feels when his best friend's father is injured and he knows the attacker. Now it's up to Alex to protect his friend from a known killer. D.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
