9780142406144: Skeleton Key (Alex Rider Adventures)

Reluctant teenage superspy Alex Rider is useful to the national security services in ways an adult could never be. Now they require his help once again: for a routine reconnaissance mission at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships. But before long, Alex finds himself caught up in a terrifying chain of events that leads from the Chinese Triad gangs in London to an undercover assignment on Cayo Esqueleto - Skeleton Key - Cuba. There, Alex begins to make chilling links between several suspicious deaths, an illegal nuclear weapons deal and the plans of his host, Russian General Sarov, for the future of the world. Alex faces his most dangerous challenge yet. Alone, equipped only with a handful of cleverly concealed devices, he must outwit the coldly insane Sarov...or die.

Book Description Penguin Books Australia, Australia, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 214 x 149 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Alex Rider has been through a lot for his fourteen years. He s been shot at by international terrorists, chased down a mountainside on a makeshift snowboard, and has stood face-to-face with pure evil. Twice, young Alex has managed to save the world. And twice, he has almost been killed doing it. But now Alex faces something even more dangerous. The desperation of a man who has lost everything he cared for: his country and his only son. A man who just happens to have a nuclear weapon and a serious grudge against the free world. To see his beloved Russia once again be a dominant power, he will stop at nothing. Unless Alex can stop him first. Uniting forces with America s own CIA for the first time, teen spy Alex Rider battles terror from the sun-baked beaches of Miami all the way to the barren ice fields of northernmost Russia. Come along for the thrilling ride of a lifetime. Bookseller Inventory # KNV9780142406144
