Publisher's Summary

Sir Damian Cray is a philanthropist, peace activist, and the world's most famous pop star. But still it's not enough. He needs more if he is to save the world. Trouble is, only Alex Rider recognizes that it's the world that needs saving from Sir Damian Cray. Underneath the luster of glamour and fame lies a twisted mind, ready to sacrifice the world for his beliefs. But in the past, Alex has always had the backing of the government. This time, he's on his own. Can one teenager convince the world that the most popular man on earth is a madman bent on destruction, before time runs out?
Take another thrill ride with Alex Rider.

Critic Reviews

"Once again, Horowitz tells a tight story, and his knack for descriptive action drives readers through the very accessible plot. Teens need not have read previous Rider adventures to enjoy this one." (Booklist)

Alex Rider does it again.

Alex Rider returns to save the world. This time, he meets up with old friends, old enemies, and a pop star with a need to save the world. Mind you, this pop star needs to kill thousands of innocents to do it....

This book has some exciting moments, and ends with a an unexpected twist that leads you directly into the next book.

I must read for Horowitz fans.
