Official Synopsis
With kidnap, violence, explosions, and murder, it was no ordinary weekend. But then, James Bond is no ordinary boy...In a North London cemetery, a professor is kidnapped at gunpoint. A suspicious letter crammed with cryptic clues arrives at Eton. To decipher the deadly mystery, James Bond must take a series of dangerous gambles. Once the code is cracked, he has just 48 hours to save the professor from the dark forces that threaten to destroy them both. And if the professor can't escape, it's not only his future under threat. It's the rest of the world's...


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 any of these titles will be in contention for the final title.

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 Fleming, so this third novel will be based around the structure of "Moonraker".

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)".
