Recently recruited and trained as a special agent by MI6, the British secret service, 14-year-old West Londoner Alex Rider is sent to infiltrate an ultra-private school where the rich and powerful send their uncontrollable, rebellious sons. What he discovers in the mountaintop fortress of the campus are enough armed guards to repel an invasion-and new classmates who have become eerie copies of each other in their compliant attitudes and actions. This fast-paced yarn delivers technological wizardry and James Bond-like action.

"James Bond couldn't face more danger than crafty 14-year-old Alex Rider does in his second mission for MI6, the British secret service. Simon Prebble provides the perfect British voice for a lively adventure starring a young hero with a bulletproof ski outfit and enough clever gadgets to ensure top-notch intrigue. Prebble's villains scream "nasty," and the good guys pop up with voices of calm at just the right moments. Action-packed from beginning to end, the audio sizzles as Alex uncovers a mad scientist with a diabolical scheme to rule the world. D.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
