James Bond given Carte Blanche

First details of Jeffery Deaver's new Bond novel revealed


The new James Bond novel, written by Jeffery Deaver, will be called CARTE BLANCHE. Its title and cover artwork were just unveiled at a special launch event at the InterContinental Hotel in Dubai. Like Fleming, Jeffery Deaver takes inspiration from exotic locations around the world, and after visiting Dubai for the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature last year he decided to set part of CARTE BLANCHE in the United Arab Emirates City. Regarding the book's title, Deaver added, "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 judgment. 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?"Jeffery Deaver's Bond will have a contemporary setting. CARTE BLANCHE also features Fleming's favourite car a Bentley. Historically, Bond owned three Bentley cars in the course of the fourteen original novels written by Ian Fleming and, bringing the plot completely up to date, Bond drives a Bentley Continental GT in the new book.CARTE BLANCHE will be published this year in the UK and Ireland on May 26th. It will be published in the USA and Canada on June 14th.Click here to for more details about CARTE BLANCHE.

Exciting minus.   Any chance someone can come up with something original...any time soon?  When we get to the stage that we're remaking "Magnum"; "The Rockford Files" and "Hawaii 5 OH!"...can "Friends" and other ghastly remakes be far behind?

"Quincy" - er,

"Wagon Train"...er

just show the original series and let's have done with it.  As far as "Bond" is concerned - well, the current incumbent looks like someone who would hold up the local fish and chip shop for $10 and come out $3 short. The "Bond" franchise should be dead in the water but continues to thrive - who knows why?  Some sort of twisted loyalty handed down through the generations?

Only the original author will do...I think we all know he'd be bored ****less churning out novel after novel  to satisfy the Broccoli family.  It appears their greed knows no bounds.
