"Alex Rider may be 14 years old, but he's been a spy for British MI6 for several years. At the death of a sworn enemy, Alex happens to hear a clue relating to the prior death of his own father, a secret that plunges him into a terrifying search for the truth. Narrator Simon Prebble jumps effortlessly from the personalities of teenaged boys to those of deadly assassins, never out of character for a single syllable. His subtle shadings of the narrative passages inspire terror, laughter, and tears without a hint of the contrived. At the story's shocking conclusion, Prebble offers the most skilled portrayal of the most impossible scene for any compassionate soul to comprehend. R.L.L.
