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. * Guardian * 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. * Scotsman * Horowitz is a worthy successor to Ian Fleming, putting 007 back in his true domain...
