Carte Blanche

Author(s): Jeffery Deaver

Crime Fiction

Fresh from Afghanistan, James Bond has been recruited to a new agency. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of Five, Six and the MoD, its very existence deniable. Its aim: to protect the Realm, by any means necessary. The Night Action alert calls Bond from dinner with a beautiful woman. GCHQ has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack scheduled for later in the week: casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected. And 007 has been given carte blanche to do whatever it takes to fulfil his mission.

Product Information

'The most impressive feature of CARTE BLANCHE is the ingenuity of the breathless, blood-thirsty plot ... Kingsley Amis, John Gardner and Sebastian Faulks are among those who have tried to bring Bond back to life. Deaver, though, is in a class of his own: nobody's done it better.' -- Evening Standard 'Top US thriller writer Jeffery Deaver has brought Bond bang up to date ... CARTE BLANCHE has it all.' **** -- Sun 'Deaver's enthusiasm for Bond comes through on every page and puts the gift for plotting that has garnered him such massive popularity to superb use here. So CARTE BLANCHE is excellent fun, a great read and Jeffery Deaver has breathed new life into an old favourite.' -- Sunday Express 'I was agreeably surprised at how much I enjoyed CARTE BLANCHE, probably the best Bond continuation novel since Fleming's death nearly half a century ago. Deaver combines the best of Fleming's crisp, eclectic style without compromising his own ability to tell a cracking story.' -- Literary Review 'Brings 007 bang up to date ... It's also thrilling and genuinely surprising like most of thriller king Deaver's novels. If they turn this into the next 007 film (after the one that comes out in 2012), it'll be great.' **** -- Heat 'Deaver's immaculate sense of pace comes into its own. It's hard to imagine anyone not being impressed by this novel' -- Independent on Sunday
