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.

Having bought a complete set of Young Bond books for my (now Adult) son, an avid James Bond fan - Ian Flemming style - and read them all myself before passing them on, I felt I must complete the set with a copy of this 'Dossier'.

However, I was not prepared for the amazingly detailed and fascinating collection of information it contains.

It opens with a complete, Charlie Higson Young Bond story, a sort of 'what happened next' bridge section, prior to the Ian Flemming Bond stories. There follows an incredible, fully illustrated record of all the main characters, places and situations featured in the preceeding books including factual details of real people, places and maps, which gives the stories an element of truth.

I am left breathless at the ingenuity and research that must have gone into making this beautifully presented book. A 'must have' to all Young Bond devotees or even as a taster to any who have not yet read the earlier five, action-packed, often very violent but always exciting adventures. The final index is helpful, and comprehensive.

The book starts with a short story (50-odd pages) that fits between Hurricane Gold and By Royal Command. This is well up to the standard of the rest of the series and a good, fast-paced read.

The remainder of the book gives background information on the characters in the series, weapons, cars, locations etc. As an adult reader I found this only of mild interest, but looking back I can imagine that it might particularly appeal to a young teen, and may be read and re-read until the book disintegrates!

I read the short story and thought it was action packed, but not rushed as i thought it would. To be honest, reading this helped me understand in a lot more detail the story and the big question "what will happen to Bond?" It just gives you that little bit of extra infomation to stop from wondering.
