Summary

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.

Welcome continuation

Excellent narration of another great Bond Jr story. I've gone through 3 in 10 days or so and will be buying the 4th very soon. Top job by everyone involved.

Fast paced thriller

Wow! What a ride! Well written, with plots twists and surprises at every turn and well performed by Nathaniel Parker’s flair for giving each character a suitable voice. This adds to the story and brings it to life. I have listened to preceding books but that isn’t necessary as each book can stand on its own, although references to earlier situations add to the roundness of the whole. I found it be ry hard to put down. I am definitely read/listen to the next in the series. Thank you, Mr Higson.

Excellent Young Bond adventure, superbly narrated.

Probably the best of the superb series by Charlie Higson. Fast paced, moody and with the Fleming style and sweep. The narration by Nathaniel Parker adds to the tone of Fleming's classic character.
