Charlie Higson: On His Majesty's Secret Service
Thursday 5th October
Topping & Company Booksellers of Bath, York Street, Bath, Somerset BA1 1NG
We are incredibly honoured to welcome Charlie Higson to Bath, on James Bond Day no less, to celebrate On His Majesty's Secret Service.
It is the 4th of May, two days before the coronation of King Charles III and the world's favourite spy has his work cut out for him. Bond is sent at the last minute to thwart an attempt to disrupt the Coronation by the wealthy, eccentric and self-styled Athelstan of Wessex, who is on a deadly mission of his own to teach the United Kingdom a lesson.
Can Bond dismantle his shady plans and defeat his privately hired team of mercenaries?
Charles Murray 'Charlie' Higson is an English actor, comedian, author and former singer.
Higson published many novels through the 1990s which took a slightly dystopian look at everyday life, centering around characters teetering on the edge of society and finding themselves to be out of control, following in the footsteps of Aldous Huxley and George Orwell in their 'new worlds.' In 2004, Higson created the Young Bond series of James Bond novels, aimed at younger readers and concentrating on Bond's school days.
