As for the rest of the book, we’ll see Bond caught up in the Soviet-American space race just as the U.S. prepare for a critical rocket launch. Filled with action and globe-trotting adventure, we’ll meet vengeful Korean adversary Jai Seung Sin in this book, who has been described as sadistic and scheming – what more could we want from a Bond villain!
Not only does it seem we can expect plenty of action and golden Bond moments in Trigger Mortis, but we’ll also see the return of one of the most popular Bond girls of the series – Pussy Galore! And if one classic Bond girl isn’t enough, we’ll also be introduced to brand new Bond Girl Jeopardy Lane. We can’t wait to see how these two characters fit into the story!
Antony Horowitz is of course a very popular crime and thriller writer and has written Sherlock Holmes books The House of Silk and Moriarty to great critical acclaim. On his new book Trigger Mortis he has said –
“It was always my intention to go back to the true Bond, which is to say, the Bond that Fleming created and it was a fantastic bonus having some original, unseen material from the master to launch my story. I was so glad that I was allowed to set the book two weeks after my favourite Bond novel, Goldfinger, and I’m delighted that Pussy Galore is back! It was great fun revisiting the most famous Bond Girl of all – although she is by no means the only dangerous lady in Trigger Mortis. I hope fans enjoy it. My aim was to make this the most authentic James Bond novel anyone could have written.” – Antony Horowitz
