James Bond, the world's most famous spy, returns to his 1950s heyday in this thriller from New York Times bestselling author Anthony Horowitz, incorporating never-before-published material from 007's creator, Ian Fleming.

James Bond won his battle with criminal mastermind Auric Goldfinger, but a whole new war is about to begin. With glamorous Pussy Galore by his side--and in his bed--Bond arrives home from America to the news that SMERSH, the deadly Soviet counterintelligence agency, plans to sabotage an international Grand Prix. He must play a high-speed game of cat and mouse on the track to stop them, but a chance encounter with a mysterious Korean millionaire, Jason Sin, warns him that the scheme is only the Soviets' opening move.

This dashing and seductive narrative of fast cars, beautiful women, and ruthless villains has all the hallmarks of an Ian Fleming original, including familiar faces such as M and Miss Moneypenny. Trigger Mortis pits Bond and American adventurer Jeopardy Lane against a cold-blooded tycoon determined to bring America to its knees--with the help of SMERSH, who will pay any price to secure Soviet victory in the space race now at the heart of the Cold War. The clock is ticking as the scheme unfolds, culminating in a heart- stopping New York City showdown that will determine the fate of the West.

Action-packed. Nasty villain. Written by a James Bond/Ian Fleming fan for James Bond/Ian Fleming fans.

I checked this book out because I thought it had been written by Tony Horwitz not Tony Horowitz! I read many James Bond books long ago and have since realized there are a lot better adventure thrillers out there. Poor James isn't that intriguing anymore. The novels have always been corny but have created such fun, silly, and "out there" movies! I confess that I didn't read more than 10 pages, maybe it gets better?

Easily the most casual and uninteresting novel of modern times ! Barely touches any level of suspense or character exposure. Pretends to continue Flemming's obsession with artifacts and cultural guff - but does that even poorly. Disappointing and not the slightest bit fun or edgy. Another effort by lazy publishers to trade on brand or past success without any effort or serious concentration. Skip it.
