Alex has found out that his uncle has died and he has no family to live with. This led him to M16 because Ian will for Alex was under the bank company. Ian had died in a car crash, but Alex knew Ian was very cautious. This seemed odd to him.
The 2 men in suits show up to Ian Rider's funeral. The men where Ian's bosses at the bank company.
At the bank company Alex was not allowed to go in his uncle's office. He climbed through the window and saw a file called "Stormbreaker" but it had nothing to do with the bank records.
When Alex gets caught in Ian's office, they shoot him in his right shoulder. The "Stormbreaker" file was not supposed to be exposed to the world. They try to erase his memory, but that didn't work. After the failed attempt to erase his memory, they black mail him to not disclose information.
After Alex was blackmailed, he was forced to go to the secret service training for the "bank" company. Alex was the youngest in the camp by about 5 years but Alan Blunt thought that sending Ian's nephew to Sayle Enterprises would go unnoticed.
When Alex arrived in Sayle Enterprises, he was chased out of the compound lot by 4 wheelers almost dying. Herrod Sayle thought Alex was being weird and not acting like Felix, his fake identity.
