weekend. But then, James Bond is no ordinary boy...In a North
London cemetery, a professor is kidnapped at gunpoint. A suspicious

the deadly mystery, James Bond must take a series of dangerous

Charlie Higson revealed in a Q&A earlier this year
that his three working titles for the book were "Shoot
The Moon", "The Big Smoke" and "Six
Days in December". MI6 has learned that it is unlikely

The third book will take place predominantly in 1930s London
and feature one of the world's first computers as a central
plot device. Higson's formula for the series so far has
been to follow the pattern laid out by Ian

Higson said of his third Young Bond adventure, "There's
lots of action, several nasty deaths, a car chase, a couple
of explosions, a set of evil villains, a beautiful girl,
and a climax in the old London docklands (when is was still
full of ships)".

Young Bond developments.
