Blood Fever 

11. Blood Fever: A James Bond Adventure, Charlie Higson (347 pages)

The second in the Ian Fleming-estate approved 'Young Bond' series. I still think Higson does a good job of writing in the Fleming style (if you like the Bond films, you really should read Ian Fleming's original works; you'll be shocked at how much better they are. And this from a serious 007 fan!), and reading of the adventures of a young James, it's not too difficult to make the connection of 'oh, yes; clearly, this guy was destined to be a super-spy'.
Well written, with lots of action and very Bond-esque villains. Took approximately four hours to read!
