From the Publisher:
Alex Rider, the spitting image of his father in so many ways, is about to find out just how closely he is his father's son. When Alex learns that his father was an assassin for Scorpia, the most powerful terrorist organization going, his world shatters. Now Scorpia wants Alex on their side, and Alex wages a war of conscience he no longer has the will to win. Until, that is, he learns of Scorpia's latest plot: an operation known only as "Invisible Sword" that will result in the death of thousands of people. Unless he can stop it first . . . .
With a cliffhanger you'll want to read twice, Scorpia is the most intense thriller yet from bestselling author Anthony Horowitz.
Annotation:
Teen secret agent Alex Rider is in Venice, trying to uncover the secrets of his father's past as an assassin for Scorpia, an esoteric crime syndicate. With their name as his only clue, Alex scours the city, coming up empty-handed until, by chance, a private gondola leads him to the impressive, sinister Widow's Palace. There, he enters the diabolical heart of Scorpia and very nearly joins them until he unveils a depraved plot called "Invisible Sword." This is the fifth heart-stopping adventure in the ALEX RIDER series.
