Essential reading for all Bond fans
on 13 January 2010
Danger Society: The Young Bond Dossier is the essential guide to Charlie Higson's world of young James Bond. It's packed with information on the villains, girls, weapons, cars, locations, everything you love about James Bond both young and old. Best of all the book contains an all-new Young Bond short story, A Hard Man To KIll, set between the books Hurricane Gold and By Royal Command. It is a lengthy and hugely exciting story that is absolutely up to the high standers we've come to expect from this series. It also features what may be the most fiendish villain of the entire series, and we get the return of a favorite Young Bond Girl (but I won't spoil it by telling you who). The book is packed with Kev Walker's illustrations, including all-new illustrations for the short story.
Young Bond fans will certainly enjoy this book, but I would also recommend it to all James Bond fans, even those who for whatever reason have resisted the Young Bond series. In these pages you will see just how inventive the world Charlie has created for Young Bond is, and a read of the short story will give you an excellent taste of what the Young Bond phenomena is all about.
