First CARTE BLANCHE plot teaser!

The first Carte Blanche plot teaser has appeared on the website of U.S. publisher Simon & Schuster and on Amazon. It's getting exciting!

“The face of war is changing. The other side doesn’t play by the rules much anymore. There’s thinking, in some circles, that we need to play by a different set of rules too . . .”

James Bond, in his early thirties and already a veteran of the Afghan War, has been recruited to a new organization. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of MI5, MI6 and the Ministry of Defense, its very existence deniable. Its aim: To protect the Realm, by any means necessary.

A Night Action alert calls James Bond away from dinner with a beautiful woman. Headquarters has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack scheduled for later in the week: Casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.

And Agent 007 has been given carte blanche.

Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver will be published by Hodder & Stoughton in the UK on May 26, 2011, and by Simon & Schuster in the U.S. on June 14, 2011.


  1. Very intriguing. The hardline purists (re: the people who are never happy with anything) will grouse at the whole "secret organization independent of MI6" business, but I'm excited to see where this might go.

  2. A good plot for Bond 23.

  3. Interestingly, this teaser has now been replaced.
