 They told him his uncle died in a car accident. Fourteen-year-old Alex knows that’s a lie, and the bullet holes in his uncle’s windshield confirm his suspicions. But nothing prepares him for the news that the uncle he always thought he knew was really a spy for MI6–Britain’s top secret intelligence agency. Recruited to find his uncle’s killers and complete his final mission, Alex suddenly finds himself caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse


The James Bond for the younger generation. We start off with Alex Rider, who’s banker uncle has just died. But was he really a banker? As Alex find out, no he wasn’t. Instead he was apart of M16, and they now need Alex’s help.

Alex is a cool 14 year old who’s been trained since young physically and to use his mind as well. Provided with gadgets befitting his age (think Spy Kids), Alex takes us on a fast-paced adventure.

Alex comes off just a little too perfect but this is only the first book. As the series continues, we’ll hopefully learn more about him to make him as real as a teenaged British spy can be.
