Okay, you've got to know I'm a sucker for spy thrillers. My first dates
my husband were to watch James Bond movies and I cut my reading teeth on all
the old Alistair McLean and Helen
MacInnes novels in our high school library. So when I found out Anthony
Horowitz, the creator of "Foyle's War" and writer for "Midsomer Murders" was
penning a James Bond novel from Ian Fleming's papers, I was IN!
TRIGGER MORTIS (Harper, September 8, 2015) promises to pick up after the
Knox battle in Goldfinger and includes old familiar faces. To get ready, I
think I'll just indulge in a little Ted Bell whose reminds me so much of
TRIGGER MORTIS: Incorporating original, never-before-published
from 007 creator Ian Fleming, New York Times bestselling author Anthony
Horowitz returns literary legend James Bond to his 1950s heyday in this
exhilarating and dashing thriller.
The world's most famous spy, James Bond, has just returned victorious from
showdown with Auric Goldfinger in Fort Knox. By his side is the glamorous
streetwise Pussy Galore, who played no small part in his success. As they
settle down in London, the odds of Galore taming the debonair bachelor seem
slimâ€”but she herself is a creature not so easily caught.
Meanwhile, the struggle for superiority between the Soviet Union and the
is escalating. In an attempt to demonstrate Soviet strength, SMERSH plans to
sabotage an international Grand Prix in the hot zone of West Germany. At the
NÃ¼rburgring Racing Circuit, Bond must play a high-speed game of cat and
to stop them, but when he observes a secretive meeting between SMERSH's
and a notorious Korean millionaire, it becomes clear that this is just the
infamous organization's opening move.
An orphan of the Korean War, he has a personal reason for wanting to bring
America to its knees. He's helping SMERSH decisively end the white-hot space
raceâ€”but how? With the help of an American female agent, Bond uncovers a
that leads first to Florida and then to New York City, where a heart-
face-off will determine the fate of the West.
This thriller has all the hallmarks of an original Ian Fleming adventure and
features welcome familiar faces, including M and Miss Moneypenny. Horowitz
delivers a smooth and seductive narrative of fast cars and beautiful women,
ruthless villains and breathtaking plot that will leave readers hanging
the very end.
There are series I never get tired of visiting, and J.D. Robb's In Death
series is at the top of the list. Not only do I re-read the series, but
the weeks building up to a new release I experience the same anticipation I
feel at the Holidays because in my family a new J.D. Robb release is a
event. My mom, sister, uncle, and I trade each new release back-and-forth
we can all get to the book store for our own copy. I'll admit to feeling a
sense of victory when I am the first to read the new book. DEVOTED IN DEATH
releases on September 15, and I may start preparing for it by revisiting
of the previous books in the series!
