Forever and a Day by Anthony Horowitz
Following on from the success of 2015’s Trigger Mortis, Anthony Horowitz has been commissioned by the Fleming estate to write his second James Bond novel. Much like its predecessor, Forever and a Day embeds previously unseen material written by Fleming. Unlike other Bond novels however, the story takes place prior to him receiving “Double-O” status.
When the body of the former 007 is washed up riddled with bullets, James Bond is plunged into the underworld of the French Riviera. As Bond grapples with a sinister Corsican villain, we also learn more about his backstory. The gun metal cigarette case and his penchant for Morland cigarettes, worsted shirts and Martini’s shaken not stirred.
Forever and a Day is an explosive prequel to Casino Royale which promises to please Bond aficionados and a new legion of fans.
