    By Matt Weston on 2008-04-13

    The official Penguin Books website offers a brand new, juicy plot synopsis of the fifth Young Bond book by Charlie Higson, By Royal Command.

    The outline offers information additional to the synopsis that emerged yesterday.

    Following a treacherous rescue mission high in the freezing Alps, James Bond is preparing for life back at Eton. But James is under surveillance; his every move is being watched. He alone holds the clue to a sinister plot that will bring bloodshed and carnage to his school – and his country.

    Forced to flee from Eton to Austria, James must leave behind everything he knows, with only a beautiful – and dangerous – girl by his side.

    Soon he is trapped in a deadly war of secrets and lies, as a nightmare reunion with a bitter enemy plunges him once more into the face of death.

    Life for James Bond will never be the same again.

    By Royal Command is due to be released on 4 September 2008. James Bond fans eager for a snippet from the novel can pick up the Hurricane Gold paperback on 28 May, which contains an extract from Charlie Higson’s fifth Young Bond title.
