    Will, a teen who invents ingenious spy gadgets, has felt off-kilter ever since his father was killed and his mother left, supposedly to visit her mother in St. Petersburg, after dropping Will off with a friend in London. Soon Will is recruited by STORM ("Science and Technology to Over-Rule Misery"), a small group of young geniuses who start out with a vague intention of doing good and end up with a mission to save the world from a mad, evil plot. Will makes a sympathetic hero, thrown off balance by his family's disintegration and unsure of whom to trust. Subplots wind into and out of the main story, to be resolved in the final exciting scenes when STORM infiltrates a compound near St. Petersburg. Readers intrigued by the main characters will be glad to know that sequels are in the pipeline. Alex Rider fans hungry for more will find this a satisfying novel filled with espionage, danger, and cool paraphernalia.
