Kidnap. Violence. Explosions. Murder. No ordinary weekend. But then, James Bond is no ordinary boy... In a north London cemetery a professor is kidnapped at gunpoint. A suspicious letter crammed with cryptic clues arrives at Eton. To decipher the deadly mystery, James Bond must take a series of dangerous gambles. Once the code is cracked, he has just 48 hours to save the professor from the dark forces that threaten to destroy them both. And, if the professor can't escape, it is not only his future under threat but the rest of the world's... The third explosive Young Bond bestseller from Charlie Higson.

Reeling from Parker’s performance

Parker’s best performance yet. Bond was the ambassador of danger yet again in this instalment but Parker left me totally on edge. The combination of Higson’s brilliant mind and Parker’s voice made this listen my favorite yet.

Gripping listening - couldn't switch it off

Once again I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the adventures of the young James Bond. Nathaniel Parker is amazing with his narration of all the characters and his silky smooth voice. Off to download the next one - can't wait x

Great story for long drives

Any additional comments?

This is a great story told expertly by Nathaniel Parker. We listened to this on a family holiday with lots of "car time" and we all loved it (adults and 2 boys, 7 and 10).

Good for driving "kids on board"

My children (8-11) all enjoyed listening to this (and behaved in the car whilst doing so). And it was very listenable for me too (40s)!
