Description

Thousands will die. It is not known where, or how, or who is behind the threat. 007 is given carte blanche to do anything necessary to protect his country, but there is no blank slate when innocent lives are at stake. The only suspects are career killers with no care for civilian victims. Bond must find out who is paying them, what they plan, and stop them. And he has five days to do it.

Reviews

The most impressive feature of CARTE BLANCHE is the ingenuity of the breathless, blood-thirsty plot ... Kingsley Amis, John Gardner and Sebastian Faulks are among those who have tried to bring Bond back to life. Deaver, though, is in a class of his own: nobody's done it better. Evening Standard 'Top US thriller writer Jeffery Deaver has brought Bond bang up to date ... CARTE BLANCHE has it all.' **** Sun 'Deaver's enthusiasm for Bond comes through on every page and puts the gift for plotting that has garnered him such massive popularity to superb use here. So CARTE BLANCHE is excellent fun, a great read and Jeffery Deaver has breathed new life into an old favourite.' Sunday Express 'Brings 007 bang up to date ... It's also thrilling and genuinely surprising like most of thriller king Deaver's novels. If they turn this into the next 007 film (after the one that comes out in 2012), it'll be great.' **** Heat 'Deaver's immaculate sense of pace comes into its own. It's hard to imagine anyone not being impressed by this novel' Independent on Sunday
