More in suspense

Rachel loved her garden so much she had her husband Henry put a bench facing her garden so she could spend hours reading in the sunlight and gazing at the beautiful flowers she planted. Rachel wanted her garden to be the envy of every garden grower in the state but wasn't really sure how she was going to do it. She read every book about gardening she could but she was getting frustrated.

Then one day when she was reading one of her books on gardening she just remembered that her husband Henry had a laboratory in their basement. Rachel decided that one night when her husband was doing one of his experiments she would peek her head through the doorway and watch what he was doing. Rachel quietly walked down the basement and slowly opened the door just enough to see what her husband was doing. Rachel didn't want him to know she was watching him because he didn't like to be disturbed when he's working on his experiments. Rachel was getting more frustrated because she didn't see him working on any experiments on flowers. 

Just as Rachel was slowly shutting the door she noticed he went over to another table and brought a flower that was in a pot and placed it on the table. This got Rachel excited. She slowly opened the door just enough not to be noticed. Henry opened a blue bottle and placed a few drops of the solution on the flower and sure enough the flower got larger and more beautiful than ever. Rachel shut the door and scurried off to their bedroom and pretended she was asleep.

Alex Rider will soon be a star in his very own TV series! 

The world’s greatest teen spy is back in action in a thrilling new mission: destroy once and for all the terrorist organization SCORPIA. Americans may have purchased more than 6 million copies of Alex's adventures, but now, more than ever, we all need his heroics.

Following the events of Scorpia Rising, Alex relocates to San Francisco as he slowly recovers from the tragic death of his best friend and caregiver, Jack Starbright, at the hands of terrorists working for SCORPIA. With Jack gone, Alex feels lost and alone, but then, out of the blue, he receives a cryptic email--just three words long, but enough to make Alex believe that Jack may be alive. Armed with this shred of hope, Alex boards a flight bound for Egypt and embarks on a dubious quest to track Jack down.

Yet SCORPIA knows Alex's weakness. And the question of whether Jack is alive soon takes a backseat to a chilling new terrorist plot--one that will play with Alex’s mind as he grasps the magnitude of what is at stake.

From Egypt to France to Wales, from luxury yachts to abandoned coal mines, Alex traverses a minefield of dangers and cryptic clues as he fights to discover the truth. The #1 New York Times bestselling series, perfect for fans of James Bond and Jason Bourne, is back with a vengeance!
