'By Royal Command' UK paperback released

The paperback edition of Charlie Higson’s fifth Young Bond adventure, By Royal Command, is released today in the UK by Puffin Books.

By Royal Command sees James Bond thrown into the midst of a dangerous, spy-ridden plot that threatens both King and country. Set between the two World Wars and moving between Eton and the chilling slopes of the Austrian Alps, By Royal Command sees the young James Bond put to the test as never before.

The new paperback includes an exclusive extract of a new Young Bond short story, A Hard Man to Kill (due to be published in the new companion book, Danger Society: The Young Bond Dossier in October). Set between the books Hurricane Gold and By Royal Command, the story finds James and his aunt Charmian traveling back to Europe aboard the French Ocean Liner Colombie. James looks forward to a relaxing, lazy voyage. But a villain named Emil Lefebvre and a mysterious hooded convict named Caiboche suggest this journey may be far from uneventful...

By Royal Command can be purchased now at Amazon.co.uk.
