As Charlie Higson’s first Young Bond novel, SilverFin, continues to fly off store shelves and anticipation grows for the January release of Book 2, Blood Fever, CBn has uncovered the first details of Charlie Higson’s third Young Bond novel.

The yet untitled Young Bond Book 3 will be set almost entirely in the darkest corners of 1930s London where young Bond battles Russian spies who are attempting to build an early computer. The release date is currently set for January 2007.
Some fans speculated that Ian Fleming Publications might release Book 3 in late 2006 to take advantage of the onslaught of James Bond publicity surrounding the release of Daniel Craig’s debut as 007 in Casino Royale. However, it appears IFP is sticking with their plans to release a Young Bond book every year — which means the series will continue until 2009, overlapping the adult centennial Bond novel due in 2008.
In an exclusive CBn interview, author Charlie Higson revealed that Young Bond Book 4 will be set in the Alps.
