Signed by Higson on the title page. This is Number 58 of 2000 printed copies. With a 'Signed by the Author' sticker on the front.

The book is in near fine condition (clean silver/red and black illustrated (featuring a black and red Union Jack) embossed glossy boards and red and silver lettering on the front and spine). No dust jacket as issued. Red page ends. Internally, the pages are clean and tight, there are no tears and no other inscriptions.

Several authors were approached by Ian Fleming Publications to write the Young Bond series. They were gathered in a secret mountain hideaway and sat around a huge marble-topped table. Charlie Higson pulled a lever and the other authors disappeared into a shark-infested tank. So Charlie got the job and the Young Bond series is a phenomenal No. 1 bestselling success.

Higson is an acclaimed comedy writer, producer, actor, and genuine James Bond aficionado, as well as a performer and co-creator of The Fast Show. He is the author of the adult thrillers, Full Whack and King of the Ants; the internationally best-selling Young Bond series: SilverFin, Blood Fever, Double or Die, Hurricane Gold, and By Royal Command; and the YA apocalyptic thriller: The Enemy, which he wrote to frighten his ten-year- old son.

The fifth book in the bestselling Young James Bond series, By Royal Command takes place in 1934 and sees James at the age of fourteen.

Following a treacherous rescue mission high in the freezing Alps, James Bond is preparing for life back at Eton. But James is under surveillance; his every move is being watched. He alone holds the clue to a sinister plot that will bring bloodshed and carnage to his school – and his country.

Forced to flee from Eton to Austria, James must leave behind everything he knows, with only a beautiful – and dangerous – girl by his side. Soon he is trapped in a deadly war of secrets and lies, as a nightmare reunion with a bitter enemy plunges him once more into the face of death. Life for James Bond will never be the same again.

'James Bond. For king and country.'"
