Alex Rider is the story of an ordinary teenage boy dragged unwittingly into the dangerous and morally compromised world of international espionage – a reluctant hero forced to become an agent for the British government. Based on the phenomenally successful novels by Anthony Horowitz, the series expands on the books, introducing new characters and exploring the world of high-stakes espionage with a gritty and contemporary tone.
When his uncle and guardian, Ian, is killed in a car crash, teenager Alex starts to doubt the story he’s given by the police. He investigates the accident himself and is soon thrust into a shadowy world of espionage that makes him question everything he once knew.
