    Higson provides a commentary for many of the fascinating locations that featured in his third novel about James Bond’s adventures at Eton, including Regent’s Park, Highgate East Cemetery, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Spitalfields and the Docklands. Higson not only tips off readers as to where they can find the brain of mathematician Charles Babbage, but also where to get the best ribs, burgers and barbecue chicken in London!

    To read the article, head on over to Guardian Unlimited.

    The Guardian previously included the limited edition book, The Young Bond Rough Guide To London with its 7-8 April Weekend Edition, which gave readers an in-depth look at Double Or Die‘s locations.

    Double Or Die is available now, while the collector’s edition of the novel will hit Waterstone’s shelves on 25 October. And don’t forget to check out CBn’s brand new competition, in which you can win a copy of the Double Or Die audiobook, narrated by Charlie Higson himself.
