SilverFin, Charlie Higson’s first bestselling Young Bond novel published earlier this year, was one of the most talked about children’s books of the year, described by the Independent as ‘one of the publishing sensations of 2005’. Higson introduced the teenage Young Bond to a whole new generation of readers and his second book has all the deadly ingredients of an equally exciting bestseller.

The Young Bond “SilverFin” game follows the story of the bestselling novel where an adolescent James has just started boarding school at Eton in the 1930’s. From there, the action moves to the Highlands of Scotland, where Alfie Kelly, a local boy, has gone missing. Young Bond teams up with the boy’s cousin, Red, to investigate the mystery and soon discovers that Alfie’s disappearance is linked to a madman and his sinister plot for global power.
