Jeffery Deaver, the author of eighteen other novels of suspense, has been nominated for three Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America & is a two-time recipient of the Ellery Queen Readers Award for Best Short Story of the Year. A lawyer who quit practicing to write full time, he lives in California & Virginia.
From the opening strains of Bond's signature movie theme music to the last shaken-not-stirred martini, the reader is drawn into the nonstop-action world of 007. Thanks to best-selling author Deaver, a longtime enthusiast of Ian Fleming's creation, the British spy is reintroduced with a wonderful modern flare. Both newcomers to the sub genre and traditionalists will find much to enjoy with the updated electronics, political framework, cliff-hanging situations, and, as always, bad men to fight. Actor Toby Stephens, who appeared as the villain in the Bond movie Die Another Day, provides a wonderful reading. Stephens has the most proper British accent, which is essential. For thriller, suspense, and spy lovers.

Casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.
James Bond, in his early thirties and already a veteran of the Afghan War, has been recruited to a new organization. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of MI5, MI6, and the Ministry of Defense, its very existence deniable. Its aim: to protect the Realm, by any means necessary.
And Agent 007 has been given carte blanche to do whatever it takes to fulfill his mission...
