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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This explosive adventure is Horowitz’s second Bond book, after Trigger Mortis and marks him as fully worthy to carry on the Bond tradition. Fleming would be pleased.” Booklist (starred review)
“Horowitz employs all the tropes fans know and love…but he also delivers a conclusion whose moral complexity will surprise…Bond aficionados will be well satisfied.” Publishers Weekly
“Horowitz unfolds this tale in prose as knowingly workmanlike as Ian Fleming’s, and readers hungry for details of Bond’s origin story will find out why he demands his martinis shaken, not stirred…Crisp, unpretentious, and bound to please the legion of fans for whom a world of Bond is never enough.” Kirkus Reviews
“In this prequel to Casino Royale, Horowitz takes us to the dark and dank underworld of the French Riviera to show how one spy’s assassination leads to the emergence of James Bond.” Library Journal
