Plot rumours emerge for Young Bond 5 `By Royal Command`

17-Mar-2008 • Young Bond

Although a few key elements of the fifth and final Young Bond book "By Royal Command" are known (the 'maid incident' as mentioned by 007's obituary in "You Only Live Twice" will feature, as well as some involvement with the Royal family at Windsor), a regular tipster has offered MI6 readers a tantalising preview of what is to come...

- Young Bond encounters some members of the Hitler Youth on his way to the Alps in Austria on Easter break.
- He ends up on the run from both the British authorities as well as the Russian secret police when he is listed as missing from Eton
- Returning to London, the adventure climaxes in Windsor where Young Bond must thwart an assassination plot to kill the King.

The above details are rumour and could not be confirmed. Official plot descriptions have been scant, only mentioning the locations of the Austrian Alps and London.

The book will be released on September 4th, 2008.
