New novel covers young 007's college life

“Double or Die” has been tabbed as the new title for the latest tales of young James Bond.

Written by Charlie Higson, the book is the third in a series on the young secret agent’s life while he was at Eton, a prestigious U.K. university.

The title was voted upon after readers chimed in with a nationwide ballot. Names that got rejected were “Nemesis” and “The Deadlock Cipher.”

Higson says he believes the novels will, at some point, be adapted for the bigscreen. There will be five books in total.
