Carte Blanche : The New James Bond Novel by Jeffery Deaver

'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


'CARTE BLANCHE promises to be fast-paced, packed with twists and turns as torturous as any Bond car chase.'
The Times Praise for Jeffery Deaver

-- : 'The most creative, skilled and intriguing thriller writer in the world
Daily Telegraph

'The art of writing blockbuster thrillers is not easily mastered but Deaver has it at his fingertips.'
Daily Express

'The best psychological thriller writer around'
The Times

'The master of ticking-bomb suspense'
People magazine
