from the book's flyleaf. . .

 

"The sea keeps its secrets.  But not this time.

 

One body.  Three bullets.  007 floats in the waters of Marseilles, killed by an unknown hand.

 

It's time for a new agent to step up.  Time for a new weapon in the war against organized crime.

 

It's time for James Bond to earn his license to kill."

 

So goes Anthony Horowitz's Forever and a Day; a prequal to Ian Fleming's Bond debut novel Casino Royale.  You might recognize Horowitz as the author of the young adult series of novels about the 14 year old British school boy, Alex Ryder, who works for MI6.  He does excellent justice to both the character as well as Fleming's legacy.  A very good read

My mind is software; I will reprogram it.
My body is a shell; I will modify it.
Death is a disease; I will cure it.
Extinction is ever-looming; I will fight it.
