Product Description:

James Bond, the world's most famous spy, returns to his 1950s heyday in this thriller from New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz, incorporating never-before-published material from 007's creator, Ian Fleming.

James Bond won his battle with criminal mastermind Auric Goldfinger, but a whole new war is about to begin. With glamorous Pussy Galore by his side--and in his bed--Bond arrives home from America to the news that SMERSH, the deadly Soviet counterintelligence agency, plans to sabotage an international Grand Prix. He must play a high-speed game of cat and mouse on the track to stop them, but a chance encounter with a mysterious Korean millionaire, Jason Sin, warns him that the scheme is only the Soviets' opening move.

This dashing and seductive narrative of fast cars, beautiful women, and ruthless villains has all the hallmarks of an Ian Fleming original, including familiar faces such as M and Miss Moneypenny. Trigger Mortis pits Bond and American adventurer Jeopardy Lane against a cold-blooded tycoon determined to bring America to its knees--with the help of SMERSH, who will pay any price to secure Soviet victory in the space race now at the heart of the Cold War. The clock is ticking as the scheme unfolds, culminating in a heart- stopping New York City showdown that will determine the fate of the West.

Review:

promises to be the best Fleming homage yet. --Publishers Weekly"

In Horowitz s expert and mischievous hands, Bond hasn t been scolded into becoming all things to all people. Instead, he s still Bond, James Bond, license to do what he damn well likes. Brilliant. Thank goodness Mr. Horowitz has delivered us a great new story. --Matthew Dunn, FoxNews.com"

A new James Bond novel shakes and stirs the notoriously anachronistic superspy. --Advocate.com"

Impressive . The sturdy plot involves a suitably diabolical and grandiose scheme. An excellent mimic of Fleming s prose, Horowitz delivers an entertainment sure to please James Bond fans. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Great fun [for] readers who can t get enough of James Bond at his coolest and suave-est. --Seattle Times"

Horowitz delivers the tersely precise prose that makes Bond so compelling, but more than that, he also supplies touches of Fleming s cruel poetry . A brisk and effective ride. --The Guardian"

Horowitz has written a humdinger of a Bond story, so cunningly crafted and thrillingly paced that 007 s creator would have been happy to have owned it from his brilliant first chapter on, Horowitz is a pitch-perfect mimic of the Fleming one-line punch .He even gets the clich's spot on. --Simon Schama, Financial Times"

The heart of any good thriller is the plot, and Horowitz doesn t disappoint. The action moves with high velocity . Also stays true to the Bond of Fleming s books. --New York Times Book Review"

As Bond-villain plots go, this is a clever one . There are more than enough pleasures for even the strictest Bond aficionado in Trigger Mortis. The book barely puts a foot wrong... --Wall Street Journal"

If Anthony Horowitz s byline weren t on the cover, readers could bring themselves to believe that the new James Bond thriller actually came from the late Ian Fleming s typewriter. Trigger Mortis fits seamlessly among the original Cold War-era gems . Bona fide Bond in every way. --Fort Worth Star-Telegram"

promises to be the best Fleming homage yet. --Publishers Weekly"

It s quickly apparent that Horowitz is doing something both clever and audacious.... Very much of its period.... A clever and enjoyable pastiche, which manages to press many of the buttons that were the purview of 007 s creator.... There will surely be an appetite for more outings ? la Horowitz. --The Independent (UK)"
