Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver
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.
