Forever And A Day is the title of Anthony Horowitz’s second James Bond continuation novel.
The novel will be released in the UK on 31st May 2018, three days after what would have been Ian Fleming’s 110th birthday.
Like Horowitz’s first Bond continuation novel, Trigger Mortis, Forever And A Day includes some original material written by Ian Fleming. The new book is set prior to the events of Casino Royale, published in 1953 and the first of fourteen 007 books by Ian Fleming as well as numerous additions by various other authors.
From the press release it sounds as if the book will go into how Bond was awarded his double-O status. His two kills are briefly mentioned in Casino Royale. Bond tells Rene Mathis about them in chapter 20 of Casino Royale, “The Nature of Evil”.
The first was a Japanese cipher expert working on the fortieth floor of the Rockefeller center in New York, who was cracking Allied codes. Bond shot him from an adjacent skyscraper. His next kill was a Norwegian double agent working for the Germans. Bond stabbed him to death in his flat.
Once the book has been released we’ll review it and take an in-depth look at food and drink, friends and foes, locations and brands.
