Steve Cole's second Young Bond novel, 'Heads You Die,' was published in May in the UK. Here is a look at the artwork for the underwater action scene from the book, as well as a couple of character portraits.

In 'Heads You Die,' James's Cuban holiday has become a nightmare mission to save an old friend from a villain who has perfected 1,000 ways to kill. With corrupt cops and hired assassins hot on his heels, James must travel through Havana and brave Caribbean waters to stop a countdown to mass murder. Fates will be decided with the flip of a coin. Heads or tails. Live or die...

Diverting to Cuba on his way back from his last nail-biting adventure in Los Angeles, James Bond's rest cure in the sun does not last long before his guardian is kidnapped and a terrifying adventure begins...

"James felt a flicker of self-doubt. Two against one, over a girl he'd never met before? He hadn't meant to rival St George for chivalry, but if he walked away now..."

A big bald block of Cuban muscle in a raincoat, El Puño is muscle for hire. His name means 'The Fist' - so named because when his hand was blown off in the Brazilian revolution, he had the stump crowned with a block of granite carved in the shape of a fist, fixed and pinned to the bone.

"As the Indian Four accelerated, James took out Queensmarsh, pulled the cocking lever up and forward, inserted a ball bearing in the barrel, and closed it. Jagua veered left, making for the narrow gap between El Puño and the wall. James aimed his pistol at the man's neck and fired, but the metal pellet merely bounced off the fist as it swept down in a killer blow. James ducked inside the sidecar as the windshield was smashed clear off, and his head almost went with it."
