Summary

James Bond returns in a contemporary new thriller by Number One bestselling author Jeffery Deaver.

Carte Blanche Summary

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.

Carte Blanche 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 *
'I was agreeably surprised at how much I enjoyed CARTE BLANCHE, probably the best Bond continuation novel since Fleming's death nearly half a century ago. Deaver combines the best of Fleming's crisp, eclectic style without compromising his own ability to tell a cracking story.' * Literary Review *
'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 *
Deaver gets his cultural references pretty well spot-on, and the dialogue is impressively free of stray Americanisms * Mail on Sunday *
Deaver writes crime fiction - thrillers you want to race through - and he's bloody good . . . If he was real, 007 would be a Deaver fan * The Big Issue *
[Jeffery Deaver] would have done Fleming proud . . . Deaver's customary storytelling expertise is handsomely on display * The Good Book Guide *
Wrestling with the contemporary issues of bureaucracy and privacy, CARTE BLANCHE brings Bond into the present day, and the result is a very enjoyable, action-laden thriller * Woman's Weekly *
