The final installment of the bestselling  "Alex Rider" teen adventure series is coming out in March.  The books follow the life of 14 year-old orphan Alex Rider, who works for MI6, the British spy agency.  He spends his days fighting evil and trying to avoid getting hurt in the process.

We revisit a conversation with the series' author, Anthony Horowitz.  Here and Now's Emiko Tamagawa caught up with Horowitz when he visited the Wellesley Middle School in Wellesley, Massachusetts last year.

This segment aired on December 14, 2010.
