Summary

Following a treacherous rescue mission high in the freezing Alps, James Bond is preparing for life back at Eton. But James is under surveillance; his every move is being watched. He alone holds the clue to a sinister plot that will bring bloodshed and carnage to his school - and his country. Forced to flee from Eton to Austria, James must leave behind everything he knows, with only a beautiful - and dangerous - girl by his side. Soon he is trapped in a deadly war of secrets and lies, as a nightmare reunion with a bitter enemy throws him once more into the path of death. Life for James Bond will never be the same again.

Boring attempt to cash in on 007 brand.

Didn’t like or dislike. An ingenious but flawed attempt to engineer a pre007 James that one could care about as a character. Didn’t work for me.

A great read and story!

Well read and a real development of James’ story. Slightly more adult, slightly more involved and slightly more complicated. Brilliant writing and the kids and I wouldn’t want to listen to anyone else read it!
