As Yassen died at the end of Eagle Strike, he uttered the above words. Now, Alex Rider is in Venice, looking for secrets long buried in the past. Was his father really a ruthless assassin – and if so, what does that make Alex? The truth lies with the shadowy criminal organization known as Scorpia, and soon Alex will have to make a choice: will he continue to work for MI6, who have manipulated and betrayed him? Or will Alex join Scorpia – and get his revenge?

Brilliant, my personal favourite.


Excellent. This book is my joint favourite in the series, along with Skeleton Key; a lot of interesting secrets revealed here, plus the usual tension and thrill!
