  1. 'Hurricane Gold' Paperback Published

    Devil May Care wasn’t the only James Bond novel published to mark the centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth. Today also brings Bond fans the paperback edition of Charlie Higson’s fourth Young Bond novel, Hurricane Gold.

    First published in September 2007, Hurricane Gold finds James in storm-ravaged Mexico as he comes face-to-face with a group of ruthless bandits.

    What should make this a particularly exciting purchase for Young Bond fans is the inclusion of an exclusive extract from the forthcoming By Royal Command and, The Young Bond Dossier notes, a five-page preview of the highly-anticipated graphic novel adaptation of SilverFin.

    As part of the Hurricane Gold paperback launch, a solid gold copy of the book was crafted – the book is the centrepiece of the Young Bond section of the For Your Eyes Only: Ian Fleming And James Bond exhibition at London’s Imperial War Museum.

    Charlie Higson will also be embarking on a tour to promote the novel. Dates and locations can be found here.

    Hurricane Gold is the final part of May’s Bond book trifecta, which began with the release of Samantha Weinberg’s The Moneypenny Diaries: Final Fling and continued with today’s launch of Devil May Care.
