Grade 6-9-The first of a projected series sanctioned by the Ian Fleming estate finds young James at Eton. It’s the 1930’s and memories of World War I intrude often as James finds a place among friends but attracts the unwanted attention of an older American boy and his very rich father, a Scots lord. Lord Hellebore and his son are bullies with over-the-top ambition for success at all costs. When the term ends, James heads north to his Uncle Max’s cottage in Scotland where his Aunt, who has raised him since his parents’ death in a climbing accident, has gone to care for her dying brother. The discovery that the frightening Lord Hellbore is the local laird comes just as James meets a cockney boy named Red Kelly who has stowed away on the train, off to help locate his young cousin, Alfie, who has gone missing near the laird’s estate at Loch Silver Fin. James and Red team up to solve the mystery of Alfie’s disappearance. James’s leadership skills are apparent as he recruits a local girl and even young George Hellebore in his quest to undo the vile experiments occurring at the laird’s castle. Charlie Higson’s novel (Miramax Books, 2005) is skillfully and dramatically read by Nathaniel Parker, who gives every character a distinct voice. Fans of James Bond movies as well as Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider books will be eager to listen to this fine spy thriller.-Jane P. Fenn, Corning-Painted Post West High
