Skeleton Key (Alex Rider Adventure)

Skeleton Key - Anthony Horowitz Third book in the Alex Rider series. A little darker, Alex is more and more left to survive on its own and brought into more and more dangerous missions. What sounded like a favour to check if the Wimbledon Tennis championship was under attack as an undercover ball boy quickly becomes a life and death struggle and insane race with an unstable Russian general race from Cuba to Russia. Alex doesn't find much solace or comfort and is well on the path of bitter deception. The action is fast paced and entertaining. The violence is up a notch from the previous two books.
