Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What does it take to become the greatest secret agent the world has ever known? In this thrilling prequel to the adventures of James Bond, 007, readers meet a young boy whose inquisitive mind and determination set him on a path that will someday take him across the globe in pursuit of the most dangerous criminals of all time.

When we first meet young James, he has just started boarding school at Eton in the 1930s. From there, the action moves to the Highlands of Scotland, where Alfie Kelly, a local boy, has gone missing. James teams up with the boy's cousin, Red, to investigate the mystery, and they soon discover that Alfie†s disappearance is linked to a madman and his sinister plot for global power.

This brilliantly crafted, edge-of-your-seat thriller will mesmerize readers of all ages.
