Hurricane Gold #007 sells on eBay

On August 10, 2007 Charlie Higson signed and numbered 1500 copies of his fourth Young Bond novel Hurricane Gold. These copies were made available only to independent UK bookstores.

Now The Young Bond Dossier reports that the elusive
Hurricane Gold #007 has sold on eBay for £156.50 ($319.82). The seller discovered the book in a small bookshop in Lytham St Ann's in Lancashire and put the book up for auction with an opening bid of .99p. The auction recieved 27 bids.

Other Hurricane Gold signed editions have appeared on eBay, including #2 which sold for £70, and #1007. But #007 (the only single digit copy to receive a double-oh prefix) is unquestionably the “golden ticket” of the batch.
