The new Young Bond novel was unveiled yesterday. Continuing the series established by Charlie Higson, writer Steve Cole will release Shoot To Kill next fall. The cover sports an exciting urban design in black and silver, which includes a Walther P38 motif around the title and a silhouette of Bond leaping from a Zeppelin. Although the logo seems slightly large and out of balance, the cover is quite elegant and promises a thrilling ride! The UK hardcover edition hits shops on November 6th. No US release date has been announced yet. Press release and video trailer from Ian Fleming Publications below.

From IFP: "Lights, Camera, Murder…James Bond hits Hollywood. Young Bond is set to return on the 6th November 2014, in SHOOT TO KILL, a new adventure by Steve Cole which will take James to the glittering lights and seedy underbelly of Los Angeles. Steve Cole comments ‘I am both honoured and hugely excited to be taking on Young Bond from Charlie. I am having a fantastic time shaping a new era in the life of a truly iconic character – readers can expect many firsts, surprises and dangers to come as James´s life develops.’" I generally prefer european and asian locations, but I expect this will prove to be a great addition to the series.
