Alex discovers bullet holes in a car. Someone was shooting that car. His job to find out who it was.
Alex was brave, respectful, and daring.
*He was brave because he goes super spy working for the MI6 goes on another one of his adventures to stop some crazed power-hungry lunatic. *He was respectful because he respected anyone older than him. *And finally, he was daring because he dares to kill his two old friends, who are the villain in the story.
*He was brave because he had the guts to infiltrate an evil villain's base, fight men that were twice his age, face a near death experience and a whole lot more. *He was respectful because he never once asked for money and never complained about being dragged into the world of spying, shooting, and hurting. Also something happened (not in this book though) that in Crocodile Tears (the book before this one) Alex decided to gamble by playing a card game and won!! He got hundreds of thousands of dollars only to give all the money away to charity * And finally, he was daring because in his life he accepted his destiny of being a spy. When he was at work he would dare to go into the targets office and risk being seen.

All in all he is an amazing guy.
