Waiting on Wednesday (11) Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver

International best-selling thriller writer Jeffery Deaver has written a brand new James Bond novel. Commissioned by the Ian Fleming Estate, Carte Blanche will be published by Hodder & Stoughton on 26 May, a few days before Ian Fleming's birthday.

The plot of Deaver's eagerly anticipated Bond novel is a closely guarded secret until publication. However, it has been revealed that it takes place in the present day and the story occurs over a short period of time. CARTE BLANCHE finds Bond in three or four exotic locations around the globe, one of which is Dubai.

Deaver comments, 'In the world of espionage, giving an agent carte blanche on a mission comes with an enormous amount of trust and constantly tests both personal and professional judgement. Part of the nonstop suspense in the novel is the looming question of what is acceptable in matters of national and international security. Are there lines that even James Bond should not cross?'

He continues, 'The novel will maintain the persona of James Bond as Fleming created him and the unique tone the author brought to his books, while incorporating my own literary trademarks: detailed research, fast pacing and surprise twists.'

Why are we waiting for it?

James Bond is back!  That is all we need to tell you.  He is back with Deaver in the driving seat - sit back, Relax and Enjoy the ride...

What are you waiting for this week?
