The third Young Bond book is coming - Young Bond 3 - Which title? You decide…

In an unprecedented nationwide ballot, Britain is to decide the title of the third book in the super-selling Young Bond series, written by Charlie Higson and due to be published by Puffin Books on 4th January 2007.

Voting for the nation’s preferred title starts today, Tuesday 3rd October at 9am, and closes at midnight on the 3rd November. To cast your vote, and become part of James Bond history, visit the Young Bond website.

There are three possible titles, chosen by the author, Charlie Higson:
- DOUBLE OR DIE
- N.E.M.E.S.I.S.
- THE DEADLOCK CIPHER

To help you decide, there is an exclusive extract from Young Bond 3 on the Young Bond website and a note from Charlie Higson about the three titles he has picked.
The title will be kept a closely guarded secret until publication and revealed at an as yet undisclosed, central London location on the 3rd January 2007.

The Young Bond series follows the daredevil adventures of James Bond as an Eton school boy in the 1930s. The third instalment in a planned series of five titles, written by Charlie Higson, sees the young James Bond pitted against the dangerous criminal underworld of interwar London, a world of illegal gambling dens, Cambridge spies and East End gangs. Here you’ll read about the experiences which turned the boy into the steely and ruthless secret agent that Bond becomes as an adult.

The first books in the Young Bond series, SILVERFIN (published in March 2005) and BLOOD FEVER (published in January 2006) enjoyed tremendous success. SILVERFIN sold over 190,000 copies and spent ten weeks in the top-ten and BLOOD FEVER went straight to number one in the bestsellers chart.

All voters have a chance to win one of a limited number of tickets to the central London event and discover, before anyone else, the title of Young Bond 3.
