By Royal Command (Young Bond #5)
Before the name became a legend. Before the boy became a man.
Life for James Bond will never be the same again.
Following a treacherous rescue mission high in the freezing Alps, James Bond is preparing for life back at Eton. But James's 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 throws him once more into the path of death.
