You've got to love this prolific Brit! Anthony Horowitz has written across so many mediums -- novels, TV, theatre, films, and journalism. He created two of my favorite British television crime dramas, Foyle's War and Midsomer Murders, and wrote several episodes of Agatha Christie's Poirot. Horowitz is the author of novels for adults and young people, including the Alex Rider teen spy series. The Conan Doyle estate commissioned him to write two new Sherlock Holmes stories, The House of Silk (2011) and Moriarty (2015).
Horowitz was commissioned by the Ian Fleming estate to produce a new James Bond novel based on previously unseen material written by OO7's creator. Prior to the 1962 film, Dr. No, Ian Fleming was working on television series that was never released. Based on Fleming's unpublished manuscript, Horowitz has crafted a brilliant adventure to satisfy Bond fans, old and new.
Revisit the golden age of James Bond in his late 1950s world of danger, fast cars, smashing women, and sadistic villains in Rigger Mortis. Following his defeat of Goldfinger, Bond returns to London with Pussy Galore, but he's soon swept up in a Russians plot to sabotage a Grand Prix race in Germany. Expect to see familiar faces such as M and Moneypenny, as well as a new "Bond Girl," American agent Jeopardy Lane.
