Double or Nothing is out now!

The start of a brand-new trilogy following MI6’s agents with a licence to kill, Kim Sherwood’s explosive James Bond novel Double or Nothing hits UK bookshelves today.

James Bond is missing…

007 has been captured, perhaps even killed, by a sinister private military company. His whereabouts are unknown.

Meet the new generation of spies…

Johanna Harwood, 003. Joseph Dryden, 004. Sid Bashir, 009. Together, they represent the very best and brightest of MI6. Skilled, determined and with a licence to kill, they will do anything to protect their country.

The fate of the world rests in their hands…

Tech billionaire Sir Bertram Paradise claims he can reverse the climate crisis and save the planet. But can he really? The new spies must uncover the truth, because the future of humanity hangs in the balance.

Time is running out.

Praise for Double or Nothing

“I spy … a brilliant thriller! Double or Nothing is a clever and utterly compelling addition to the Bond canon. Get this book and clear your calendar—though it won’t be for long; I read it in one sitting” —Jeffery Deaver

“Stylish, explosive, fresh and fun, Kim Sherwood takes one of the world’s most beloved series and makes it her own”—Chris Whitaker, author of We Begin at the End

“Kim Sherwood has taken the world of James Bond and turned it on its head”—Charles Cumming, author of BOX 88

“Blistering, breakneck, brilliant. Sherwood’s first Double O novel delivers everything you could want and more from a high-octane, high-stakes spy thriller. The world of Bond is in expert hands.”—Tim Glister, author of Red Corona

“A cleverly plotted and absorbing novel with a fantastic cast of fully rounded characters in this breathtaking new novel. I loved it.”—Lisa Ballantyne
