Anthony Horowitz's new Bond is FOREVER AND A DAY

Ian Fleming Publications and Jonathan Cape have revealed the title, release date, and plot details for Anthony Horowitz's new Bond novel, Forever and a Day.

'007 is dead'
FOREVER AND A DAY: explosive prequel to 
Casino Royale by Anthony Horowitz announced

Anthony Horowitz’s second James Bond novel using original material by Ian Fleming will be published on Thursday 31 May 2018, it is announced today. Forever and a Day is a prequel to Casino Royale, Fleming’s first 007 novel, and will explore the origins of the world’s most famous secret agent. 
‘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 organised crime.

It’s time for James Bond to earn his licence to kill. 
This is the story of the birth of a legend, in the brutal underworld of the French Riviera. 
Forever and a Day will be published in the UK by Jonathan Cape – Ian Fleming’s original publisher and an imprint of Vintage Publishing.

‘I couldn't have been happier when the Ian Fleming estate invited me back to write a second Bond. I very much enjoyed writing Forever and a Day, exploring what might have been Bond’s first mission and imagining some of the forces that might have turned him into the iconic figure that the whole world knows. I hope Ian Fleming would have approved!’ – Anthony Horowitz 
’This is an excellent novel in the best tradition of Ian Fleming. His family would like to congratulate Anthony on such a superb achievement’ – Fergus Fleming, nephew of Ian Fleming and Chairman of Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. 
‘Anthony Horowitz has written the ultimate Bond novel – Forever and a Day is a thrilling ride from the very first page. It’s a book that will not only appeal to Bond fans but it will introduce Bond to a whole new generation of readers with the extraordinary story of how he got his licence to kill.’ – Michal Shavit, Publishing Director, Jonathan Cape

It'll test Bond's deadly talents to their limits, in order to defeat the assassin and avert certain geopolitical disaster... 
MONEYPENNY: Friend of JAMES BOND, former MI6 field agent and bodyguard of M! On a 'routine' protection mission, Moneypenny discovers a complicated assassination plot that bears a startling resemblance to a terrorist attack from her childhood. Can she call upon her secret agent skills to stop the plot...? 
SOLSTICE: 007 accepts an unofficial mission. He travels to Paris, in pursuit of a Russian. But is Bond the hunter, or the hunted?
M: James Bond's superior, code-named M, scrambles MI6's secret agents across the globe. Sometimes, he knowingly sends them to their deaths, for the greater good. But a traumatic event from M's early days in the eld returns to haunt him, forcing M to return to the scene of a crime...HIS crime.

Where's Anthony?

Author Anthony Horowitz has tweeted an update about the progress of his new Bond novel.

So if he's researching Chapter 21 here, that begs the question of where exactly is he? Is that the engine room of a ship by any chance? Or a submarine? Look closely and maybe we can find a clue as to where his new Bond climaxes (wait, that didn't come out right).
