Fifteen year old James Bond, recently expelled from Eton, is on a temporary stop until his aunt gets back into the country. It's been arranged that he stay with a friend of his aunt at a school in England.
He goes with a school group going to Hollywood to survey a brother school started by a film mogul, just recently moving from silent pictures to the new sound format. The film company's zeppelin would be used for the ocean crossing, then across America.
There was trouble already as a film accidentally falls into the young people's hands showing torture and beatings, real stuff, that someone wants back bad enough that several murders have already happened.
It all follows Bond and friends across the waters in an adventure filled with blackmail and violence and a villain bent on control of the film industry in a brainwashing plan to run the world.
I did like the original Young Bond Author Charlie Hinson, this was ok but lacked something I can;t quite describe.
