Reader's Reviews


Very good; I would rank it somewhere in the middle of the seven books so far in the series. As usual, unbelievable, but only after reading the book!


Brilliant, probably my second favourite in the series. Its the most revealing book of Alex's past. 4.5 out of 5.

Guns, shooting, knives, injuries and deaths.

Some swearing.

Alex is threatened with being cut up into bits and sold for money – of course this doesn't happen (and if you have read this series up to this point, you'll realise that Alex is always going to survive).
