The third book in the Young James Bond book series.

Double or Die is set in the dangerous underworld of 1930s London; a world of illegal gambling dens and Cambridge spies; of East End gangs and tough Irish dockers.

The novel opens in Highgate Cemetery, where an Eton professor is kidnapped at gunpoint. A suspicious letter crammed with cryptic clues arrives at Eton, where James Bond and his crossword enthusiast friends set to work on it. To decipher the deadly mystery, James must take a series of dangerous gambles, leading him on a perilous journey across London during which he escapes death again and again. Once the code is cracked, James has just 48 hours to save the professor from the dark forces that threaten to destroy them both. And they both know that it is not only their own futures that are at stake.

The other books in the series are Silverfin (published in 2005), Blood Fever (2006), Hurricane Gold (2007) and By Royal Command (2008).
