James Bond returns in a contemporary new thriller by Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver. CARTE BLANCHE takes place in the present day over a short period of time, and sees Bond visit three or four exotic locations around the globe, one of which is Dubai.
'In the world of espionage, giving an agent carte blanche on a mission comes with an enormous amount of trust and constantly tests both personal and professional judgement. Part of the nonstop suspense in the novel is the looming question of what is acceptable in matters of national and international security. Are there lines that even James Bond should not cross? 'The novel will maintain the persona of James Bond as Fleming created him and the unique tone the author brought to his books, while incorporating my literary trademarks: detailed research, fast pacing and surprise twists.' - Jeffery Deaver
