After a literary absence of over five years, James Bond returns to print, back in Fleming’s original timeline.

M has summoned 007 to London. It’s the swinging sixties and a flood of narcotics is pouring into Britain. Sinister industrialist Dr Julius Gorner is identified as the source and James Bond is dispatched to investigate.

The trail takes Bond to Paris and then Persia – where the beautiful and enigmatic twins Scarlett and Poppy lead him to Gorner’s secret desert headquarters. Here, Bond uncovers Gorner’s cold-blooded plans for world domination.

Only by playing Gorner’s twisted game can Bond stop him…

Sebastian Faulks is an award-winning British novelist, journalist and broadcaster.  He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2002.

At last, he heard the voice - distorted, distant but unmistakable - of the man he respected most in the world.
'The party's over.'
