Young Bond: By Royal Command

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 entire country.

Forced to flee from Eton to Austria with a fierce, beautiful girl by his side, James must leave behind everything he knows and loves. Soon he is trapped in a deadly war of secrets and lies, as a nightmare reunion with a bitter enemy brings him face to face with death. Life for James Bond will never be the same again.
