As the sun blazes over the Caribbean island of Lágrimas Negras, its bloodthirsty ruler is watching and waiting. Criminals come here to hide, with blood on their hands and escape on their minds. On the mainland, in the quiet town of Tres Hermanas, ex–flying ace Jack Stone leaves his son and daughter in the company of James Bond. But when a hurricane hits, and the storm rages on, a gang of thieves lies in ambush. They want Stone’s precious safe and will kill for its contents. When Stone’s children are kidnapped, James embarks on a deadly chase through the Mexican jungle. On this terrifying trail of greed and betrayal, only danger is guaranteed—survival is not.

Listener Opinions

    " This is a fast paced and exciting story that takes the reader to some wonderful but scarey locations. The Idea that such a place as this island exists is amazing, and James ends up there..... ineviatble. It was lacking in depth of plot for me, It seemed that all the author wanted to do was rush me to the end of the story without giving me much to do. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra Logan | 2/3/2014

    " Young James Bond is an intriguing character. I admire the way he never gives in even when everything is stacking up against him. In this story we meet James in the Carribean where he is spending time with his aunt. It is supposed to be recuperative after his adventures in Double or Die but did you really expect a Young Bond book to be about recovery? Not a chance. A freak storm, a kidnapping, gruesome deaths, enslavement, and a daring escape all feature in this fantastically action packed and fast moving story. Other characters which I liked in this story were Manny, Garcia, El Huracan and, of course, Precious. I'd imagine you could read this book without having read the previous books in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rory | 1/24/2014

    " Never mind, THIS is the best one...again so far. "

    " Swimming through honey is difficult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Rivera | 1/18/2014

    " I enjoyed the book Hurricane Gold by Charles Higson because it is a fast paced adventure with James Bond in his younger years. Somebody who enjoys action and a rushed story line. The climax is intense with it's descriptive words. Overall I recommend this book to anyone who likes action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elnatan Sacher | 12/19/2013

    " Like the three prior novels in this series this book was great and definetly worth reading. I quite liked the idea of the Avenue of Death. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sonja | 12/18/2013

    " The book is fairly violent, but the ending was a tad cliche and trite. This series is starting to become formulaic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 12/1/2013

    " Wow so much happened in so little pages. Amazing from start to finish leaving me wondering what on earth is going to happen next after every chapter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 11/24/2013

    " These seem to get better as the series goes along. I would not mind seeing Mr. Higson write some companion Bond novels: novels using some of the characters introduced in the Young James Bond series and occuring between Fleming's existing novels. Just a thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stan189 | 9/29/2013

    " This is a good book. James bond is so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Crosby | 8/1/2013

    " Not as good as Double or Die. This installment of Young Bond is weakened by some less interesting characters. Still, I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt M | 4/7/2013

    " I liked this book. I think it was a good action adventure book with plenty of details. It made the peasent side of mexico come to life. It succedded in making this seem like a james bond book, because it says it is a Young Bond book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike.f=) | 3/6/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 12/25/2011

    " Another brilliant Young Bond adventure. Not as good as Double Or Die, but a worthy follow up! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 9/26/2011

    " This one was quite bloody. Lots O' Death. It also tended to go on and on... at least in comparison to the others in the series. The bad guy with the flap of skin off his skull took forever to finally die! Still worthy of being included in the young bond saga. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Durand D'souza | 2/19/2011

    " Probably my favourite young bond book. "
