Alex just wanted to be done working for MI6. But then a reporter found out that he was a spy and he had to talk with MI6 to make the reporter not put the story in the news. So they made a deal Alex would do one more mission for them and they would take care of his problem. Then Alex stopped the bad guy and destroyed his evil scheme.
I loved this book. One reason I loved it was that it had a lot of action like when Alex and his friend's car gets sabotaged and they take in unexpected swim in a river. I also liked this book because the author had Alex with a bunch of really cool gadgets. Like exploding pens.
