Devil May Care’s Young Bond connection

Today fans get a double dose of 007. Not only is the paperback edition of Charlie Higson’s By Royal Command released in the UK, but so too is the bestselling Centenary novel Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks.

Devil May Care is set in 1968 and follows the adult Bond in action in France, Iran, and Russia. Young Bond fans should keep a eye out for a reference to the series when Bond visits the Paradise Club in Iran and is reminded of a similar club from his childhood. Of course, this is a nod to Bond’s adventure at the Paradice Club in Double or Die.

“I was very touched by that,” says author Charlie Higson. “I didn’t know he was going to do that. I was reading the book and I said, “Oh, that was nice of him.”
