Bond. Is. Back.

It''s 1969, and, having just celebrated his forty-fifth birthday, James Bond-British special agent 007-is summoned to headquarters to receive an unusual assignment. Zanzarim, a troubled West African nation, is being ravaged by a bitter civil war, and M directs Bond to quash the rebels threatening the established regime.

Bond''s arrival in Africa marks the start of a feverish mission to discover the forces behind this brutal war-and he soon realizes the situation is far from straightforward. Piece by piece, Bond uncovers the real cause of the violence in Zanzarim, revealing a twisting conspiracy that extends further than he ever imagined.

Moving from rebel battlefields in West Africa to the closed doors of intelligence offices in London and Washington, this novel is at once a gripping thriller, a tensely plotted story full of memorable characters and breathtaking twists, and a masterful study of power and how it''s wielded-a brilliant addition to the James Bond canon.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Solo:

"More than a century on, Boyd proves that there are plenty of pages left in 007''s passport. I doubt his creator could have done it better." - The New York Times Book Review

"A bloody good thriller. A triumph. Bond is back." - The Observer
