Russian Roulette
Prequel to the Alex Rider series
By Anthony Horowitz

To everyone who loves the Alex Rider series this is going to be a must read. The trailer is fast-paced and the sound effects are high-end just like in the movies..
“An international contract killer has been given his orders. His next target is a fourteen-year-old spy … Alex Rider.
The man’s name is Yassen Gregorovich. He knows Alex well. The two of them share a secret from the past.
As he considers his next mission, Yassen remembers the forces that turned him from an ordinary schoolboy into a hired assassin. What is it that makes someone choose to do evil?
What would it take to make them kill?”
What a great blurb, straight from Anthony Horowitz’s own website which is well worth a visit. If you haven’t read any of the Alex Rider books then you really don’t know what you have been missing. They are always out from the library and hugely popular with both boys and girls. Great action books. I love them and can certainly recommend them very highly. Check out the Alex Rider links too for more info.
