Has criminal mastermind Artemis Fowl met his match? Until recently Artemis Fowl was the only human to have discovered that fairies do exist. But now a second juvenile genius wants to capture one for scientific study - and not just any old fairy. The newcomer intends to trap a demon, the most human-hating species unknown to man.

Artemis Fowl is no stranger to trouble. In fact he's a magnet for it. Man-eating trolls, armed and dangerous (not to mention high-tech) fairies, flame-throwing goblins - he's seen the lot. He had decided to forego criminal activity of the more magical kind. However... Now his mother is gravely ill.
Artemis Fowl has created the most powerful new supercomputer known to man - using stolen technology from an elite race of underground fairies. And when the computer falls into the hands of an IT billionaire with a shady past and an alleged mob connection, Artemis is in deep trouble. The consequences for humans and fairies alike are deadly.
Criminal Mastermind Artemis Fowl never stops scheming... Artemis' father has been missing for almost two years. His location? The Arctic Circle, where the Russian Mafiya are holding him prisoner.
