Adventure, and loads of it - By Royal Command is the fifth page turning thriller about the school days of James Bond. Whether on holiday or at school, James finds it hard to keep out of danger. Even on school skiing holiday, he has a feeling he is being followed. But who could be watching him? And why? Recovering in a clinic after saving the life of a school contemporary in the vast expanse of the Swiss Alps, James witnesses a sinister scene. Later, he meets the royal princesses and then their uncle, the King, himself. And then Sedova, a senior member of the Russian secret service turns up at school. Despite promising his friends he’ll be the model schoolboy, James is back in the thick of international action. Life at school itself is not much quieter, whether it is trying to avoid the sadistic head of house or defusing an Irish plot to kill the King. A thrilling read from first to last.
