About this title:

Synopsis:

It's 1969, and James Bond--British special agent 007--is summoned to headquarters to receive an unusual assignment. Zanzarim, a troubled West African nation, is being ravaged by a bitter civil war, and M directs Bond to quash the rebels threatening the established regime. Bond's arrival in Africa marks the start of a feverish mission, and piece by piece, he uncovers the real cause of the violence in Zanzarim--a twisting conspiracy which extends further than he ever imagined.

Moving from rebel battlefields in West Africa to the closed doors of intelligence offices in London and Washington, Solo is at once a gripping thriller, a tensely plotted story full of memorable characters and breathtaking twists, and a masterful study of power and how it's wielded--a brilliant addition to the James Bond canon.

Review: "Nearly a century on, Boyd proves that there are plenty of pages left in 007's passport. I doubt his creator could have done it better."--Olen Steinhauer, "The New York Times Book Review"

""Solo" never fails to keep the reader on the edge of his chair. . . . Boyd is a brilliant storyteller and the interwoven plots and surprises of "Solo" are often superior to Fleming's own narrative stunts."--"The Daily Beast"

""Solo" includes faint echoes of Joseph Conrad, whose stories of adventure, intrigue and espionage are deeply infused with a sense of moral inquiry and consequence. . . . A Bond novel but also a Boyd one, with richer and deeper concerns coursing alongside the Flemingesque flourishes that should keep fans satisfied, as well."--"The Washington Post"

"Solo" never fails to keep the reader on the edge of his chair. . . . Boyd is a brilliant storyteller and the interwoven plots and surprises of "Solo" are often superior to Fleming s own narrative stunts. --"The Daily Beast""

A light, slick, sinuous adventure. . . . Though Boyd s iteration of the character owes something to Graham Greene s moral melancholy, Fleming s Bond remains recognizable. So does the excellent pacing: "Solo" feels so quick that it could already be a movie. --"USA Today""

Boyd has immersed himself in the character, the author and his oeuvre and come up with an adventure that s triumphantly the equal of the great Bond adventures. . . . A brilliant imitation that s occasionally superior to the prototype. --Robert McCrum, "The Guardian""

Boyd brings back the real Bond, triumphantly. . . . A formidable literary achievement. . . . It succeeds wonderfully. --"The Daily Mail""

A perfectly judged narrative tempo . . . . The action is expertly plotted. . . . "Solo" s true literary craft lies in the subtlety of its correspondences and also the suspenseful quality that keeps us on our toes until the closing pages. Mission accomplished. --"The Financial Times""

Breathtaking. . . . Boyd manages to enrich and refresh a character we thought we knew too well. . . . A terrific twisting thriller. . . . A tremendous Bond story. --"The Sunday Times""

A compulsively readable thriller, replicating the cocktail of ingredients that got Fleming s readers hooked and yet to let the cracks in the fantasy figure show through. A thoroughly rewarding, entertaining and ultimately thought provoking fix. --"GQ""
