Ian Fleming Publications today announced that award winning novelist Anthony Horowitz has been invited to write a third official James Bond continuation novel, due for release in May 2022.
Speaking on the announcement, Horowitz says: “I am very excited to have started my third Bond novel with the continuing support of the Ian Fleming estate. ‘Forever and a Day’ looked at Bond’s first assignment. ‘Trigger Mortis’ was mid-career. The new book begins with the death of Scaramanga and Bond’s return from Jamaica to confront an old enemy.“
Corinne Turner, Managing Director of Ian Fleming Publications Ltd says: “We’re delighted and excited that Anthony is writing his third Bond novel. From the nuggets we’ve seen so far, we are confident it will be another best-selling episode in the adventures of 007.“
The as yet untitled novel will be published in by Jonathan Cape in the UK, Commonwealth and EU and by Harper Collins US in the United States.
