    Young Bond 4 – Hurricane Gold

    By Charlie Higson

    The fourth thrilling Young Bond adventure.

    As the sun blazes over the Caribbean island of Lagrimas Negras, its bloodthirsty ruler is watching and waiting. Criminals come here to hide, with blood on their hands and escape on their minds.

    On the mainland, in the quiet town of Tres Hermanas, ex-flying ace Jack Stone leaves his son and daughter in the company of James Bond. But a gang of thieves lie in ambush–they want Stone’s precious safe, and will kill for its contents.

    A deadly chase through the Mexican jungle begins, as James fights to keep the secret treasures in sight. On this terrifying trail of greed and betrayal, only danger is guaranteed…

    Survival is not.
