About The Book

James Bond is missing…
007 has been captured, perhaps even killed, by a sinister private military company. His whereabouts are unknown.
Meet the new generation of spies…
Johanna Harwood, 003. Joseph Dryden, 004. Sid Bashir, 009. Together, they represent the very best and brightest of MI6. Skilled, determined and with a licence to kill, they will do anything to protect their country.
The fate of the world rests in their hands…
Tech billionaire Sir Bertram Paradise claims he can reverse the climate crisis and save the planet. But can he really? The new spies must uncover the truth, because the future of humanity hangs in the balance.
Time is running out.


My Thoughts

The world’s most famous secret agent has disappeared; so now we need to know who will be searching for him and take his place in the extreme situation of never finding him… Are you ready to discover the new generation of secret spies?
I am a little biased with the James Bond series; I love the action but I’ve never really liked the character or what represents; rich white perfection. So, I was really excited to discover the new generation, where there was not only one but three spies and one of them is a woman! And of course the “bad” of the story is as crazy as you can expect; a billionaire that says that can reverse climate change… 
Our secret spies will have to investigate if the super rich Sir Bertram Paradise is telling the truth or our world is in danger in his hands. Of course, everything while they are searching for the famous “Bond, James Bond”.
This is a thrilling and intense action book, in the beginning it is a little bit slow with the explanation with all the new characters and their situations. But as a new series, the detail has to be there and it’s nice to meet these new spies that are licensed to kill, no matter what.
Also, I loved seeing some of the classical Ian Fleming characters, it makes this book a real sequel of the famous spy and I really can’t wait to meet these amazing characters again.
So, are you ready to discover “Double or Nothing”?
