As the sun blazes over the Caribbean island of Lagrimas Negras, its bloodthirsty ruler is watching and waiting. Criminals come here to hide, with blood on their hands and escape on their minds. On the mainland, ex-flying ace Jack Stone leaves his son and daughter in the company of James Bond. But a gang of thieves waits in ambush. They want Stone's precious safe, and will kill for its contents. A deadly chase through the Mexican jungle begins and on this terrifying trail of greed and betrayal, only danger is guaranteed. Survival is not... This is the fourth explosive Young Bond bestseller from Charlie Higson.

Another fab book - so tense at times - my dog walks go on and on so I can keep listening! - characters come to life in my ears.
All the books from the "Young Bond" series have been really enjoyable! I've had so much fun listening to them, despite the fact that I am well out of the target age group. Yet, these books seem to have something for all ages, so no matter how old you are, give them a try and you won't be disappointed. Plenty of action, turns and twists in the story. I hope there will be at least several more in this series, because they are well worth a listen.
"Never a dull moment!"
The plot comes thick and fast, never time to catch your breath. We usually listen in the car, but had to finish this one back in the house as we couldn't wait. The whole family enjoyed it and a long journey flew by.
The setting is exotic, far away from Eton, and originally I thought we'd miss some of the characters, but there wasn't time to.
Nathaniel Parker has a great voice, love his performance because you never notice it as a "performance". None of the voices jar, so you can just get lost in the story.
Hurricane Gold - a gold plated plot
"One of the best in the YB series"
Young James Bond is taken to a secret island- a den of world-class criminals- and saves the civilised world again.
