New Kev Walker images from STRIKE LIGHTNING

The official Young Bond website has posted new Kev Walker character images from Strike Lightning, Steve Cole's third Young Bond novel due out next week. The descriptions are a little spoilerish, so don't read if you want to stay pure.




I'm currently half-way through the book and I'm thrilled to report this is Steve's best yet. In fact, this one could rival some of Charlie Higson's work.

Strike Lightning will be released in the UK as a limited hardcover and in paperback on September 1st. It can be pre-ordered now Amazon.co.uk.
