Alex Rider Wiki

In my view, Kaspar is now the most dangerous man alive, for the simple reason that he believes the whole world is with him. And in a sense he's right. I'm sure there are many people in this room who believe in protecting the environment. The trouble is, he would kill he would kill every one of you if he thought it would help him achieve his aims
