Author note

Born in 1971, Steve Cole spent a happy childhood in rural Bedfordshire being loud and aspiring to amuse. He liked books, and so went to the University of East Anglia to read more of them. Later on he started writing them too, with titles ranging from pre-school poetry to Young Adult thrillers (with more TV and film tie-ins than he cares to admit to along the way). In other careers he has been the editor ofNoddymagazine, and an editor of fiction and nonfiction book titles for various publishers. He is the author of the hugely successfulAstrosaurs,Cows in Action,

Astrosaurs AcademyandSlime Squadseries, and now the phenomenalYoung Bondseries.


"Magnificently dire wordplay and a plot that moves on at a cracking pace, this formula is right on target for cool streetwise boys. I predict that CIA will win over some hard-to-crack committed non-readers"
The Bookseller||"It's fun and it is funny. Completely bonkers but irresistible too"
