Publisher's Summary

Following a treacherous rescue mission high in the freezing Alps, James Bond is preparing for life back at Eton. But James is under surveillance; his every move is being watched. He alone holds the clue to a sinister plot that will bring bloodshed and carnage to his school - and his country. Forced to flee from Eton to Austria, James must leave behind everything he knows, with only a beautiful - and dangerous - girl by his side. Soon he is trapped in a deadly war of secrets and lies, as a nightmare reunion with a bitter enemy throws him once more into the path of death. Life for James Bond will never be the same again.

Not nearly as good as the others in the series

The story isn’t as strong as the other Hobson young bond books, but that to one side, the accent that the narrator gave to one of the characters I found so grating, that I borderline wanted to punch my headphones… however I did enjoy the rest of the series with the same narrator so maybe my expectations were too high.

Excellent listen

After listening to the first book in the series I wanted to listen to more. This book did not disappoint. It was an excellent story and well read. A fried asked me if these stories were for children, me being an adult. I must say that the gory content in places didn't make it seem for children only. If you're an adult who wants an easy read of a ripping yarn then look no further.

Boring attempt to cash in on 007 brand.

Didn’t like or dislike. An ingenious but flawed attempt to engineer a pre007 James that one could care about as a character. Didn’t work for me.
