When Alex Rider is told his uncle died because he didn't have his seat belt done up, he doesn't believe it. When he finds his uncle's car ridden with bullet holes, he's pulled into a world straight out of James Bond. His uncle's employers, the Special Operations Division of MI-6, blackmail the 14-year-old into taking over his uncle's mission, sending him into dangers he couldn't possibly predict. Nathaniel Parker's narration is precise and even. His BBC announcer tones provide the story with an English background that allows the listener to concentrate on the cliff-hanger adventures, special toys, and frightening henchman particular to the British spy genre. This case is an intrigue suitable for the whole family. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
