Young bond book 3 title
Voting for the title of Charlie Higson’s third Young Bond book closed at the end of last week, at midnight on Friday 3rd November. Thousands of fans took part in the unprecedented nationwide ballot to find the title of the next book in the super-selling Young Bond series, due to be published by Puffin Books on 4th January 2007.

There was a choice of three titles, devised by Charlie Higson:
- DOUBLE OR DIE
- N.E.M.E.S.I.S.
- THE DEADLOCK CIPHER

The winning title will be kept top secret until publication and revealed by Charlie Higson at a special event at Waterstone’s in London Piccadilly on Wednesday 3rd January.
The books will be printed under high security and wrapped in a special foil packaging to conceal the cover when they are delivered to bookshops and keep the title top secret.
Young Bond fans who have voted will be picked at random and offered a ticket to come to the reveal event, meet Charlie Higson and discover, before anyone else, the winning title.

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.
