Description of this Book

Literary legend James Bond returns to his 1950s heyday in this exhilarating thriller by Sunday Timesbestselling author Anthony Horowitz. It's 1957 and James Bond (agent 007) has only just survived his showdown with Auric Goldfinger at Fort Knox. By his side is Pussy Galore, who was with him at the end. Unknown to either of them, the USSR and the West are in a deadly struggle for technological superiority. And SMERSH is back. The Soviet counter-intelligence agency plans to sabotage a Grand Prix race at the most dangerous track in Europe. But it's Bond who finds himself in the driving seat and events take an unexpected turn when he observes a suspicious meeting between SMERSH's driver and a sinister Korean millionaire, Jai Seong Sin. Soon Bond is pitched into an entirely different race with implications that could change the world. Thrown together with American agent, Jeopardy Lane, Bond uncovers a plan that will bring the West to its knees in a heart-stopping climax. Welcoming back familiar faces, including M and Miss Moneypenny, international bestselling author Anthony Horowitz ticks all the boxes: speed, danger, strong women and fiendish villains, to reinvent the golden age of Bond in this brilliantly gripping adventure. TRIGGER MORTIS is also the first James Bond novel to feature previously unseen Ian Fleming material. This is James Bond as Fleming imagined him.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'A humdinger of a Bond story, so cunningly crafted and thrillingly placed that OO7's creator would have been happy to own it... The book is the best Bond movie you'll ever see without actually having to see the movie.' -- Simon Schama FINANCIAL TIMES 'TRIGGER MORTIS is a blast. Set two weeks after the end of the novel Goldfinger in 1957, it has a superb plot based around the early space race and features the return of the best Bond girl of them all, Pussy Galore.' MAIL ON SUNDAY 'Fleming fans certainly won't be disappointed. Trigger Mortis contains all the adrenaline you'd expect from a Bond novel with bags of humour, international jet-setting and a compelling cast of inventively named characters. It is, one suspects, a novel Fleming would be proud to have in the 007 canon.' SUNDAY EXPRESS 'Horowitz is doing something both clever and audacious...a clever and enjoyable pastiche, which manages to press many of the buttons that were the purview of 007's creator.' INDEPENDENT
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 1 stars (out of 5)
