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 plunges him once more into the face of death. With nowhere to run and no one to trust, James will have to uncover the truth behind an evil plot before all is lost. Life for James Bond will never be the same again.

Listener Opinions

    " This is a great read. I was sad to finish and know that the series is over. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Steve | 2/4/2014

    " The fifth installment of the young Bond series based on the limited details given in his obituary in the novel "You Only Live Twice." This book tells a story behind the "alleged trouble with one of the boys' maids" that got him removed from Eaton as a teenager. While not quite what Fleming probably had in mind this is an exciting story involving communists, Nazi's, the royal family, the British Secret Service, ghosts from young James Bonds past and "one of the boys' maids" figuring in prominently. A tighter story than the last book while still a page turner written for the early teenage reader "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Taylor | 2/1/2014

    " Unbelievable Young Bond book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Christopher | 1/28/2014

    " I have been reading this series with my 10 year old son and he finds them fascinating. Higson has struck the perfect chord; combining just enough complexity, plot twists, historical information, suspense, and even some Bond style violence, to make these novels real page turners and a wonderful father/son activity. The series takes place before the second world war so there is excellently handled prescient references to Nazis, Communists, and the European stage. Royal command is the last in the young Bond series while he is still a student at Eton. "
