Summary

A spy is dead. A legend is born. This is how it all began. The explosive prequel to Casino Royale, from bestselling author Anthony Horowitz.

Forever and a Day is the story of the birth of a legend, in the brutal underworld of the French Riviera, taking readers into the very beginning of James Bond's illustrious career and the formation of his identity.

***

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 organized crime.



It's time for James Bond to earn his license to kill.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Horowitz, the eighth author to write James Bond books after the death of 007 creator Ian Fleming, makes a bold move by creating a prequel to Casino Royale, the first Bond book, plus including original material by Fleming. It's 1950, and Bond James Bond has just been promoted to the Secret Service elite, the licensed to kill corps, after having proved his skill as an assassin. He is sent to Marseille to solve and avenge the murder of his predecessor as 007, a man who was his friend. He is soon involved with the mysterious Madame Sixtine, whose allegiances are not clear; her friend, multimillionaire American Irwin Wolfe; and massive Corsican gangster Jean-Paul Scipio, who takes the practice of torture to new levels. Also on the scene is CIA agent Reade Griffith, who is Bond's ally until he isn't. Bond joins forces with Sixtine, a woman his senior in age, and equal in skill and intellect (no beautiful but empty-headed Bond girls here), who explains why she orders her cocktails shaken, not stirred. This explosive adventure is Horowitz's second Bond book, after Trigger Mortis (2015), and marks him as fully worthy to carry on the Bond tradition. Fleming would be pleased. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Whether he is writing for adults or children, whether he is imagining his own characters or extending the lives of those created by others (Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle as well as Fleming), Horowitz always draws a crowd of eager readers.--Michele Leber Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Bestseller Horowitz boldly creates an origin story for 007 in his entertaining second James Bond pastiche (after 2015's Trigger Mortis), a prequel to Ian Fleming's Casino Royale (1953). The arresting opening sentence, "So, 007 is dead," refers to Bond's predecessor, whose body was found floating in the water off Marseilles, where he was investigating the activities of the Corsican underworld. M dispatches Bond, newly recruited to the Double-O section, to the South of France to track down the agent's killer. In his last radio transmission, the first 007 mentioned Sixtine, a mysterious independent operative, whom Bond makes a point of meeting at a casino. Sixtine leads him to Corsican mobster Jean-Paul Scipio, a classic Bond villain who's so obese that he can "pulverize his enemies using his own weight." A fine storyteller, Horowitz employs all the tropes fans know and love (including an elegant explanation for the famous martini mandate, "shaken, not stirred"), but he also delivers a conclusion whose moral complexity will surprise anyone expecting an ending more in line with Fleming's own. Bond aficionados will be well satisfied. Agent: Jonny Geller, Curtis Brown (U.K.). (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
