James Bond returns in a contemporary new thriller by Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver. 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.

Industry Reviews
the action is non-stop. - Sunday Herald Sun

The pace is cracking and Carte Blanche is replete with red herrings, unexpected twists, subplots, one involving Bond's late father, chapters with cliffhanger endings and a substantial body count. The locations are suitably exotic and movie planning is reportedly under way...Deaver has upheld the Fleming legacy with honour, but in his own inimitable style. - The Weekend Australian

Deaver has many fans of his own thanks to his bestselling crime novels. The villain he has constructed as Bond's nemesis in Carte Blanche the creepy, long fingernailed rag-and-bone trader Severan Hydt is classic Deaver. - The Adelaide Advertiser

Most people are more familiar with the James Bond film franchise than the books, and Carte Blanche has enough action to satisfy the most avid of film fans. There are also plenty of gadgets, evil protagonists and romance. - Woman's Day

It s great to have Bond back, yet again. - The Brisbane News

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

'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
