As previously announced, 7 April marked the release of the Young Bond Rough Guide To London, the compelling guide to Charlie Higson’s Young Bond Dossier, this new release contains a few details on a possible villain to appear in future Young Bond novels:
‘In a series of desperate gambles that take him to London’s West and East ends and to Cambridge, James is helped by his old pal Red Kelly, hunted by two bickering assassins and faces a spymaster called Babushka. Her name may mean “granny” in Russian but she is James’s most ruthless foe yet–escaping so she can, potentially, wreak more havoc in future novels.’
It was reported in August of last year that Higson’s fourth Young Bond novel would feature a female in the main villain role–could this possibly be Babushka? Stay tuned.
