About the Author:

Steve Cole is a best-selling children's author whose sales exceed three million copies.

His several original Doctor Who novels have also been bestsellers. An original comedy, fantasy and adventure writer, Steve's work includes a broad range of books, most recently the Secret Agent Mummy series for younger readers, Stop Those Monsters! and the explosive Young Bond title Shoot to Kill. His next Young Bond adventure Heads You Die publishes May 2016 with a further adventure for the teenage James Bond planned for publication later this year. Much in demand for his energetic performances at events, Steve has appeared at Edinburgh, Hay, Cheltenham, Oxford, Bath, YALC and World Book Day's Biggest Book Show on Earth. He has toured schools in Europe, America, the UAE, Australia and New Zealand, and featured at sci-fi and Doctor Who conventions from London to Los Angeles.

Review:

"There are car chases, fight scenes, a glamorous party and a final shoot-out that is surely a homage to the climax of The Man With the Golden Gun ... [Cole] is a master of action, and the scenes on the sinister airship as it makes its way over the Atlantic are particularly tense." -- Suzi Feay The Financial Times "What impressed me most about Shoot to Kill was Cole's ability to create a contained story that moved the character of James Bond on, but stayed true to the Fleming vision. Children will love the action elements of this book, but even an adult who is a fan of Bond can get some sneaky pleasure out of the book." The Bookbag "The story was exciting and the period details were authentic; he has obviously done his research and handles his material with confidence. The writing is economical and the characters are well drawn, they include some suitably villainous bad guys plus strong female roles too. As a life-long fan of Fleming's books Steve Cole is comfortable in Bond's world including several playful nods to the older Bond's character." -- Clair Stanton We Love This Book "Action-packed, with references to Fleming's Bond that will surprise and delight the most avid Bond fan." Mail on Sunday "Comedy, dash and imagination refresh a rebooted British hero." -- Amanda Craig New Statesman
