Publisher's Summary

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.

A disappointment indeed

I had such high hopes for this James Bond as i have for the others before. The first of my disappointments lies in James complete idiocity when it came to the girl he attached himself to and tried to save so many times. Despite her numerous attempts at his life he still made stupid decisions for her benefit. The first of his actions is forgivable, even the 2nd but the rest? No way. Too many. Stupidity is what it was.
The second disappointing thing was his complete disregard for common sense! He made such an effort to deliberately get into trouble that it was not longer fun to see his efforts to get out, especially since it was by shear chance he made it through most of the time, not skill and cleverness. No one ever gets lucky that much so it wasn't realistic to hear. Hope any future books will be better.
