New Bond novel to mark 100th anniversary

It is called Devil May Care and it is the newest of the Bond novel written by Sebastian Faulks in the style of Ian Fleming. And it is set in the period of the Cold War. Wonder who the Baddies are and I hope the Russian Communists do not get upset again!

A new James Bond novel is being unveiled more than 40 years after the last in the spy series was published. Entitled Devil May Care, the book, by Sebastian Faulks, is the 15th to feature suave secret agent 007. Its launch, onboard HMS Exeter at Tower Bridge in London, marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Bond creator Ian Fleming.

The plot of the book, said to be written in the style of Fleming, is being kept a closely guarded secret. So far all that is know is that the adventure takes place in 1967, during the Cold War, and takes 007 to Paris, London and the Middle East. But its publisher has said it marks a return to Bond's original character after many screen adaptations. (BBC)
