Book Synopsis



A spy is dead. A legend is born. This is how it all began. The explosive prequel to Casino Royale, from bestselling author Anthony Horowitz.

Forever and a Day is the story of the birth of a legend, in the brutal underworld of the French Riviera, taking readers into the very beginning of James Bond's illustrious career and the formation of his identity.

M laid down his pipe and stared at it tetchily. "We have no choice. We're just going to bring forward this other chap you've been preparing. But you didn't tell me his name."

"'It's Bond, sir, '" the Chief of Staff replied. "James Bond."

The sea keeps its secrets. But not this time.

One body. Three bullets. 007 floats in the waters of Marseille, killed by an unknown hand.

It's time for a new agent to step up. Time for a new weapon in the war against organized crime.

It's time for James Bond to earn his license to kill.



Review Quotes




"A fine storyteller, Horowitz employs all the tropes fans know and love (including an elegant explanation for the famous martini mandate, "shaken, not stirred"), but he also delivers a conclusion whose moral complexity will surprise anyone expecting an ending more in line with Fleming's own."--Publishers Weekly

Horowitz's trademark is a kind of gorgeous competence; a reader always feels utterly secure in the credibility of his narratives, however outlandish they get. Here, again, he handles a complicated plot with aplomb (and blessedly few explosions). Does he find a human being inside James Bond? He tries, and Sixtine is one of the best Bond girls ever written.--USA Today

The versatile Horowitz has written authorized books about Sherlock Holmes and others, and here spins a fragment of Fleming's writing into a splendid prequel to the Bond canon.--Seattle Times
