Alex Rider #2: Point Blanc

Fourteen-year-old Alex is back at school, trying to adapt to his new double life… and double homework. But MI6 have other plans for him. Investigations into the deaths of two of the world’s most powerful men have revealed one link: both had sons attending Point Blanc Academy – an exclusive school for rebellious rich kids. Run by the sinister Dr Grief and set high on an isolated mountain peak deep in the French Alps, Point Blanc is a world of its own. Armed only with a fake ID and a new collection of disguised gadgets, Alex must infiltrate the academy and discover the truth about what is happening there. But the secret that Alex uncovers goes way beyond his worst nightmares. Can he alert the world before it’s too late?

  • This book is really good. I have listened to the book being read on an app called Audible. The book had lots of mystery and I would be wondering what was going to happen next.

    I recommend this book to anyone who likes the Alex Rider books.
