The Lovereading4Kids comment

In a nutshell: want action, adventure and storytelling flair? The name’s Bond.

The discovery of a lost communication from his father sent just before his tragic death some years earlier, sends the young James Bond off on a dangerous, possibly deadly trip to Moscow and the heart of the old Soviet Union. Once again Steve Cole gives Bond fans (of any age) the action-packed adventure they love, along with the glamorous, sharply described settings that are so important to the books, and he adds more than a touch of sharp humour too. Once again, it works brilliantly. Cole understands exactly what makes Bond Bond, and he seems to have real sympathy for his character and his obsessive fascination with danger. Great stuff ~ Andrea Reece


Red Nemesis by Steve Cole


James is back in Steve Cole's fourth and final blistering Young Bond adventure ... Not only will James have to fight to stay alive and save the country he loves, but to clear the Bond family name, which he holds so dear. The stakes couldn't be higher, and James doesn't know who he can trust...

Praise for the Young Bond series:

‘It’s set in mafia-soaked, golden-era Hollywood, giving this proto-007 plenty of scope for adventure. It’s a cracking read with fantastic fight scenes, glam parties and some pretty decent plotting.’ - Alex O’Connell, The Times, Book of the Week

‘There are car chases, fight scenes, a glamorous party and a final shoot-out that is surely a homage to the climax of The Man With the Golden Gun . . . [Cole] is a master of action.’ - Suzi Feay, The Financial Times

‘Action-packed, with references to Fleming’s Bond that will surprise and delight the most avid Bond fan.’ - Mail on Sunday

‘Packed with blackmail, murder and revenge, Shoot to Kill is Young Bond at his best.’ - Sunday Express
