Alex Rider is on the wrong side of the world - and the law. Alone in Sydney, he is recruited by the Australian government to infiltrate an organized people-smuggling ring: the violent criminal underworld of the Snakeheads. Working undercover as a refugee he moves to Bangkok, where he meets someone he can finally trust - a fellow agent and true friend: or is there any such thing in the poisonous world of espionage?
