Plot summary

As the sun blazes over the Caribbean island of Lagrimas Negras, its bloodthirsty ruler is watching and waiting. Criminals come here to hide, with blood on their hands and escape on their minds.

On the mainland, in the quiet town of Tres Hermanas, ex-flying ace Jack Stone leaves his son and daughter in the company of James Bond. But a gang of thieves lies in ambush – they want Stone's precious safe, and will kill for its contents. James embarks on a deadly chase through the Mexican jungle. On this terrifying trail of greed and betrayal, only danger is guaranteed ... Survival is not.




  • As with many of the entries in Higson's Young Bond series, the book's title was retroactively wrote back into the novel by Higson after its selection. Added narrative included the fictitious concept of "Hurricane Gold" - a treasure that brings misfortune on those who possess it.[1]
