Anthony horowitz James Bond novel Trigger Mortis and Forever and a Day

Product description

Review

Daring, exciting, and also superbly plotted, it shows Bond questioning his loyalties at the end of his career. It marks a fitting end to a trilogy from Horowitz that Fleming would surely have approved of -- Jon Coates ― Sunday Express

The super spy is back, with a fresh injection from novelist and screenwriter extraordinaire, Anthony Horowitz. The expert in suspense takes us back to the beginning of James Bond’s story… the story rips along with plenty of familiar Bond staples: evil villains, fast cars and women falling for young Bond’s charms. Ian Fleming would be proud. ― Guardian

In many ways, Horowitz has now surpassed Fleming and the final book in his Bond trilogy is
a masterpiece. It's a literary thriller writing at its page-turning finest.'Daily Express

Horowitz is
a worthy successor to Ian Fleming, putting 007 back in his true domain… This New Bond is up there with the better Old Bonds… The denouement is a very fine piece of action writing… Horowitz has done splendidly. ― Scotsman

A novel that
feels very like a filmfast-paced, skilfully writtenleaves you wanting more, and for serious Bond junkies [it] is the next fix in a long tale of addiction. ― The Times

Even better than Trigger Mortisit is tremendous fun. Anthony Horowitz has the discipline and skill of a first-class action writer.Sunday Express

Exciting high drama… Horowitz stays loyal to the fabulous Fleming formula. And for that he surely deserves another mission guiding the fortunes of the world’s favourite superspy. ― Daily Express

[Horowitz's Bond] is once again in safe hands, not departing much from
Fleming’s entertaining formula... Horowitz’s light touch and smooth plotting create something close to the ideal holiday read.Irish Examiner

Anthony Horowitz writes
Bond in the style of Fleming... Total brain candy in the best possible fashion.RTE Guide

Horowitz shows that he knows the Fleming books backwards, offering plot twists that are homages to the master's novels. This nicely imagined book... is
an amusing and thought-provoking addition to the post-Fleming bond canon.The Times *Audiobook of the Week*

An enjoyably
compact thriller, with an absolutely killer last line. ― Guardian

Anthony Horowitz's second James Bond book
will keep 007 obsessives happy with martinis, beautiful women and an enormously fat Corsican gangster. ― The Times *Best New Novels*

Forever and a Day is an explosive prequel to Casino Royale which promises to please Bond aficionados and a new legion of fans.Northern Insight **Book of the Month**

This is
another great new James Bond novel from Horowitz, who’s filling the shoes of Ian Fleming with apparent ease. ― Trucking

Highly enjoyable.Metro

Anthony is an enthusiastic writer who relishes the world of adventure he conveys. ―
Writing Magazine

A timeless Bond... has all the elements of a rollicking read.Irish Examiner

Welcome to my Amazon author page. It's strange to think that when I wrote my first book, there was no Amazon - in fact there was no internet, no computers. That doesn't make me particularly old. It just shows how quickly times have moved.

In fact I wrote my first book when I was ten, stuck in a miserable, north London boarding school where reading and telling stories were my only lifeline. Every time I write a new book, I have the same sense of urgency that I had then. I knew without any doubt that I would be an author. Perhaps it helped that I wasn't much good at anything else.

Cut forward to the present and now I have over forty-five published novels to my name. The game changer for me was Stormbreaker, the first Alex Rider adventure, published in 2000. There were eleven more books in the series - the latest, Never Say Die, was published in 2017 - and they are now being developed for TV. I have plenty of other children's books out there - I was delighted to discover my Power of Five series (Raven's Gate, Evil Star etc) on sale in a tiny bookshop in Elounda, Crete only a few days ago.

But as I grew older (and my original audience entered their twenties) I felt a need to move into adult writing. This began with two Sherlock Holmes continuation novels, The House of Silk and Moriarty, followed by my entry into the world of James Bond with Trigger Mortis. A second Bond novel is on the way. An original thriller, Magpie Murders was published last year and got some of the best reviews I've had. One of the joys of Twitter, incidentally, is that it allows readers to contact me directly and these 140-character exchanges are as valuable to me as what the professional critics have to say.

I also write for TV. After cutting my teeth on the hugely popular show, Robin of Sherwood, I moved on to work with David Suchet and his brilliant portrayal of Hercule Poirot, writing about nine or ten episodes of Agatha Christie's Poirot. I was the first writer on Midsomer Murders and then went on to create Foyle's War which I worked on for the next sixteen years. Somewhere along the way, I also created a five-part series for ITV called Injustice which very much influenced the book I'm publishing now.

The Word is Murder is hopefully the start of a long-running series. It introduces a detective by the name of Daniel Hawthorne - a rather dark and dangerous man whom I actually met on the set of Injustice. At least, that's my version of events and that's what counts here because, very unusually, I actually appear in the book as his not entirely successful sidekick; the Watson to his Holmes.

The whole point of being an author is that you're in control. But here I am, writing a book in which I have no idea what's going on, following in the footsteps of a character who refuses to tell me anything. What I'm trying to do is to give the traditional whodunit a metaphysical twist. I hope, if you read it, you'll enjoy all the clues, the red herrings, the bizarre range of suspects and the occasionally violent twists. With a bit of luck you won't guess the ending (nobody has so far). But at the same time, The Word is Murder offers something more. It's a book about words as much as murder, about writing crime as well as solving it.

Do let me know what you think. I really hope you like the book. If you do, you can tweet me your thoughts at @AnthonyHorowitz. I hope to hear from you!
