What impressed me most about Shoot to Kill was Cole's ability to create a contained story that moved the character of James Bond on, but stayed true to the Fleming vision. Children will love the action elements of this book, but even an adult who is a fan of Bond can get some sneaky pleasure out of the book. * The Bookbag *
The story was exciting and the period details were authentic; he has obviously done his research and handles his material with confidence. The writing is economical and the characters are well drawn, they include some suitably villainous bad guys plus strong female roles too. As a life-long fan of Fleming's books Steve Cole is comfortable in Bond's world including several playful nods to the older Bond's character. -- Clair Stanton * We Love This Book *
Action-packed, with references to Fleming's Bond that will surprise and delight the most avid Bond fan. * Mail on Sunday *
Comedy, dash and imagination refresh a rebooted British hero. -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman *

Very impressive first bond book from Cole. It's a remarkably adult novel in its themes and even by the end of the first chapter I was surprised by events. It's a great read and cole is a worthy successor to... More
Another good young bond from Cole. Great story, loads of action and again a fairly adult approach which I love. I'd recommend the young bond series to all bond fans. Brilliant books.
