Young Bond in Mexico

Charlie Higson's fourth Young Bond novel, Hurricane Gold, is released today in the U.S. by Disney Hyperion. The book is a hardcover with dust jacket artwork by Kev Walker (who also illustrated the SilverFin Graphic Novel).

Hurricane Gold -- which was first released in the UK in 2007 -- finds young James battling gangsters in the jungles of Mexico. Says author Charlie Higson, “I’ve always loved Mexico and wanted to write something about Mexico. I love the food and the music and growing up on all those cheesy westerns and 1930s thrillers that are set there. So it was just quite fun for me. ... I made sure it’s fairly non-stop action from the beginning.”

The final Young Bond novel, By Royal Command, will be released in the U.S. in May 2010.
