Publisher's Summary

The final audiobook in the #1 best-selling Alex Rider series!
Alex Rider's life changed forever with the silent pull of a trigger. When Ian Rider died at the hands of the assassin Yassen Gregorovich, Alex, ready or not, was thrust into the world of international espionage. He's the world's only teenage spy. Alex vowed revenge against Yassen and the two have battled ever since. Yet, years ago, it was none other than Alex's own father who trained and mentored Yassen, turning him into the killer he would eventually become.
What makes us choose evil? Why did one boy choose to kill while another chose to risk his life to save others? In some ways, Alex Rider and Yassen Gregorovich are mirror images of each other. Yet the paths they traveled turned them into mortal enemies. This is Yassen's story. A journey down a darkened path.

"...a kind of thriller that children yearn for, rooted in meticulous realism yet soaring with inventiveness, action, humour and characters who engage the heart and mind..." ( The Times)

Interesting but not an Alex Rider book

Life story of one of the ‘baddies’ in the Alex Rider books. OK story but nothing as good as the Alex Rider books. The narrator uses an awful ‘Russian’ accent throughout the book, would have been far better read without put on accent. Worth a listen but nothing special.
