It?s just another day in the life of an average kid. If you?re Alex Rider, that is. A con artist has realized there is big money in charity? the bigger the disaster, the greater the money flow! So that is what he will produce: the biggest disaster known to man, all thanks to genetically modified corn that can release a virus so potent it can knock out an entire country in one windy day.
