Steve Cole returns with his fourth and final Young Bond novel. 'Red Nemesis' is published today (May 4th, 2017) in the UK in paperback and collectors edition hardcover. It marks the end of the Young Bond series of novels, which originally started with a run of five books by Charlie Higson. 

In 'Red Nemesis,' James is on home soil when he receives a package with a message from beyond the grave. The package’s mysterious contents put James at the heart of a long-running plot that, if it runs its course, will paint London’s streets red with blood. Not only will James have to fight to stay alive and save the country he loves, but to clear the Bond family name, which he holds so dear. The stakes couldn’t be higher, and James doesn’t know who he can trust... Click here to read the prolog online.
