The Young Bond news just keeps on coming. The Young Bond Dossier reports that Charlie Higson has updated fans in an interview on the official Young Bond website on what to expect from the fifth novel (which will be set in the summer of 1934, with the Royal Family playing a role).
When asked if young James Bond would eventually be joining the secret service in the future, Higson explained:
‘Wait and see. All will be revealed in book 5. I have been planting some seeds, but nobody will really put it all together until the last book is published. Certainly James won’t be going to work for MI6 in my books–don’t worry, he won’t become a dreaded teenage spy–and M won’t appear. But we have already seen through the character of Uncle Max that there is a history of spying in Bond’s family. Maybe someone’s been keeping an eye on him? Events in book five will mean that the secret service gets involved…’
Good things come to those who wait.
