French cover art for TRIGGER MORTIS (Déclic mortel)

Cover art for the French Calmann-Lévy edition of Anthony Horowitz's new Bond novel Trigger Mortis (Déclic mortel) has been revealed on Amazon.fr. The cover echoes the design of the U.S. edition, but adds a nice visual reference to auto racing, a big part of the book.


It appears Trigger Mortis will be released by two different publishers in France, Calmann-Lévy and Hachette. Proof editions from Hachette show their cover design will be similar to the UK edition.

Déclic mortel will be released in France on September 23, 2015.

  1. Hachette Jeunesse confirmed me it was indeed a Premiere in France to have two different Publishing houses proposing the very same title at the same time . Reason is that , while Bond was perceived as big enough a brand by Calman Levy , Anthony Horrowitz , however , was already a best-seller writer with his Sherlock Holmes pastiches amongst Hachette Jeunesse readers . Hence decision to propose two variations - with the very same French translation
