A British agent floats in the waters of the French Riviera, murdered by an unknown hand.

Determined to uncover the truth, James Bond enters a world of fast cars, grand casinos and luxury yachts. But beneath the glamour, he soon encounters a dangerous network of organised crime.

It’s time for Bond to earn his licence to kill. He must find those responsible and unravel their devastating plan – before he becomes their next victim…

ANTHONY HOROWITZ is one of the most prolific and successful writers working in the UK. He has written over 40 books including the bestselling teen spy ‘Alex Rider' series, which is estimated to have sold 19 million copies worldwide.

Anthony is also an acclaimed writer for adults. His novels set in the Sherlock Holmes world were authorised by the Conan Doyle Estate. The House of Silk was published in November 2011 and was internationally lauded as the top title of the autumn. The sequel, Moriarty, was published in October 2014 with similar success.

In 2015 the Ian Fleming Publications and the Ian Fleming Estate then asked him to write a continuation James Bond novel, Trigger Mortis, and the hardback of Forever and a Day followed in 2018. His standalone novel, Magpie Murders, was released in October 2016 to critical acclaim and 2017 saw the launch of a new series featuring Detective Daniel Hawthorne, The Word is Murder and The Sentence is Death.

Anthony is also responsible for creating and writing some of the UK’s most beloved and successful television series, including Midsomer Murders and Foyle’s War. In 2014, he was awarded an OBE for his services to literature.



"The super spy is back, with a fresh injection from novelist and screenwriter extraordinaire, Anthony Horowitz. The expert in suspense takes us back to the beginning of James Bond’s story… the story rips along with plenty of familiar Bond staples: evil villains, fast cars and women falling for young Bond’s charms. Ian Fleming would be proud.”

"Horowitz is a worthy successor to Ian Fleming, putting 007 back in his true domain… This New Bond is up there with the better Old Bonds… The denouement is a very fine piece of action writing… Horowitz has done splendidly.”

"Straight away Horowitz is able to capture Fleming’s flowing style and intricate details from how Bond likes his eggs in the morning to the cars he drives... He’s just as faithfully suave as in the original novels.”
Daily Express

"A novel that feels very like a film… fast-paced, skilfully written… leaves you wanting more, and for serious Bond junkies [it] is the next fix in a long tale of addiction.”
The Times

"Even better than Trigger Mortis… it is tremendous fun. Anthony Horowitz has the discipline and skill of a first-class action writer.”
Sunday Express

"[Horowitz's Bond] is once again in safe hands, not departing much from Fleming’s entertaining formula... Horowitz’s light touch and smooth plotting create something close to the ideal holiday read.”
Irish Examiner

"Anthony Horowitz writes Bond in the style of Fleming... Total brain candy in the best possible fashion.”
Rick O'Shea RTE Guide

“Anthony Horowitz's second James Bond book will keep 007 obsessives happy with martinis, beautiful women and an enormously fat Corsican gangster.”
The Times *Best New Novels*

“Horowitz shows that he knows the Fleming books backwards, offering plot twists that are homages to the master's novels. This nicely imagined book... is an amusing and thought-provoking addition to the post- Fleming bond canon.”
The Times *Audiobook of the Week*
