Exclusive: Title and details revealed of new Young Bond short story (spoilers)

Young Bond - 14-05-09
A new Young Bond short story by author Charlie Higson will be published later this year in the upcoming guide book "Danger Society: The Young Bond Dossier". An extract of this new adventure will be published in the back of the By Royal Command paperback which is due out on May 28th in the UK.

MI6 has gleaned some advance information on the story, which is sure to whet the appetites of all Young Bond fans.

The adventure titled "A Hard Man To Kill" is set during James' return from Mexico at the end of "Hurricane Gold". Young Bond travels back on a French ocean liner.

It will also introduce a character who plays a big part in Bond's later career in the 00 section at MI6. No doubt influenced by the character's popularity in the first two movies starring Daniel Craig, a young René Mathis will meet Bond for the first time during the course of the short story.

"A Hard Man To Kill" will be the longest 'short story' ever published featuring James Bond.

Be sure to pre-order your copy of the "By Royal Command" paperback out later this month, which includes an extract of the short story.



Pre-Order "By Royal Command" Paperback (Amazon UK).
