Synopsis

Trigger Mortis A James Bond Novel by Anthony Horowitz

James Bond is back where he belongs. Anthony Horowitz's new novel is a thrilling tour de force, sure to delight fans of the original 007 novels and new readers alike. It also features previously unseen material written by Bond's creator, Ian Fleming. The story begins in the lethal world of Grand Prix and an attempt by the Russians to sabotage a race at Nurburgring, the most dangerous track in Europe. Bond is in the driving seat but events swiftly take an unexpected turn, pitching him into an entirely different race with implications that could change the world.

Reviews

'A humdinger of a Bond story, so cunningly crafted and thrillingly placed that OO7's creator would have been happy to own it... The book is the best Bond movie you'll ever see without actually having to see the movie.'
Simon Schama FINANCIAL TIMES

'TRIGGER MORTIS is a blast. Set two weeks after the end of the novel Goldfinger in 1957, it has a superb plot based around the early space race and features the return of the best Bond girl of them all, Pussy Galore.'
MAIL ON SUNDAY

'Fleming fans certainly won't be disappointed. Trigger Mortis contains all the adrenaline you'd expect from a Bond novel with bags of humour, international jet-setting and a compelling cast of inventively named characters. It is, one suspects, a novel Fleming would be proud to have in the 007 canon.'
SUNDAY EXPRESS

'Almost too good'
EVENING STANDARD

'Horowitz is doing something both clever and audacious...a clever and enjoyable pastiche, which manages to press many of the buttons that were the purview of 007's creator.'
INDEPENDENT

'There is a delicate line separating imitation from parody and Horowitz stays on the right side of it to perfection.' DAILY EXPRESS
