9780062416902: Trigger Mortis: With Original Material by Ian Fleming (James Bond)

Incorporating original, never-before-published material from 007 creator Ian Fleming, New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz returns literary legend James Bond to his 1950s heyday in this exhilarating and dashing thriller.

The world's most famous spy, James Bond, has just returned victorious from his showdown with Auric Goldfinger in Fort Knox. By his side is the glamorous and streetwise Pussy Galore, who played no small part in his success. As they settle down in London, the odds of Galore taming the debonair bachelor seem slim—but she herself is a creature not so easily caught.

Meanwhile, the struggle for superiority between the Soviet Union and the West is escalating. In an attempt to demonstrate Soviet strength, SMERSH plans to sabotage an international Grand Prix in the hot zone of West Germany. At the Nürburgring Racing Circuit, Bond must play a high-speed game of cat and mouse to stop them, but when he observes a secretive meeting between SMERSH's driver and a notorious Korean millionaire, it becomes clear that this is just the infamous organization's opening move.

An orphan of the Korean War, he has a personal reason for wanting to bring America to its knees. He's helping SMERSH decisively end the white-hot space race—but how? With the help of an American female agent, Bond uncovers a plan that leads first to Florida and then to New York City, where a heart-stopping face-off will determine the fate of the West.

This thriller has all the hallmarks of an original Ian Fleming adventure and features welcome familiar faces, including M and Miss Moneypenny. Horowitz delivers a smooth and seductive narrative of fast cars and beautiful women, ruthless villains and breathtaking plot that will leave readers hanging until the very end.

About the Author:

Anthony Horowitz is the author of the New York Times bestseller Moriarty and the internationally bestselling The House of Silk, as well as the New York Times bestselling Alex Rider series for young adults. As a television screenwriter, he created Midsomer Murders and the BAFTA-winning Foyle’s War, both of which were featured on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery. He regularly contributes to a wide variety of national newspapers and magazines, and in January 2014 was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for his services to literature. He lives in London.

Review:

“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 clichés 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)

“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)

“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)

“A new James Bond novel shakes and stirs the notoriously anachronistic superspy.” (Advocate.com)

“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 à la Horowitz.” (The Independent (UK))
