Read full description of the books:
If you are an avid reader of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels, you know there are traces of Bond's youth in the original tales. You are aware of Bond's expulsion from Eton over an alleged problem with a boys' maid. You are aware of his mentor and ski instructor Hans Oberhauser (whose offspring figures to be part of the upcoming film, SPECTRE). That said, we know little else and it has been with great joy I've read Charlie Higson's 5 Young Bond novels.
This one wraps up Higson's full length novel look at Bond's youth and sees the character come full circle from a relatively naive boy who has lost his parents in a climbing accident to someone whose adventures has made life at Eton boring and has seen young James lose his innocence and experience far more in his first 14 years than most ever have or will.
The character development continues to be strong, there are some extremely strong quoteworthy items scattered throughout specifically by Merriott and Roan Powers, and you truly see how this boy James will become 007. Without any spoilers, this one definitely puts James Bond in harm's way multiple times against enemies of the time, both known and those becoming more prominent. He has brushes with royalty and we find out what Fleming meant when he alluded to the problem with the boys' maid.
Strong conclusion to an excellent series. 4 stars.

Read information about the authorHigson was educated at Sevenoaks School and at the University of East Anglia (where his brother has taught since 1986 and is now a professor of film studies) where he met Paul Whitehouse, David Cummings and Terry Edwards. Higson, Cummings and Edwards formed the band The Higsons of which Higson was the lead singer from 1980 to 1986. They released two singles on the Specials' 2-Tone label. Higson then became a plasterer before he turned to writing for Harry Enfield with Paul Whitehouse and performing comedy. He came to public attention as one of the main writers and performers of the BBC Two sketch show The Fast Show (1994-2000). He worked with Whitehouse on the radio comedy Down the Line and is to work with him again on a television project, designed to be a spoof of celebrity travel programmes.[1:]
He worked as producer, writer, director and occasional guest star on Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) from 2000 to 2001. Subsequent television work has included writing and starring in BBC Three's Fast Show spin-off sitcom Swiss Toni. He is currently starring in Tittybangbang series 3 on BBC Three and has appeared as a panellist on QI.
He published four novels through the early to mid 1990s which take a slightly dystopian look at everyday life and have a considerably more adult tone than his other work, with characters on the margins of society finding themselves spiraling out of control, leading him to be described by Time Out as 'The missing link between Dick Emery and Brett Easton Ellis' [2:]
In 2004, it was announced that Higson would pen a series of James Bond novels, aimed at younger readers and concentrating on the character's school-days at Eton.
