Praise for Forever and a Day

The super spy is back, with a fresh injection from novelist and screenwriter extraordinaire, Anthony Horowitz. The expert in suspense takes us back to the beginning of James Bond’s story… the story rips along with plenty of familiar Bond staples: evil villains, fast cars and women falling for young Bond’s charms. Ian Fleming would be proud.

Guardian

Horowitz is a worthy successor to Ian Fleming, putting 007 back in his true domain… This New Bond is up there with the better Old Bonds… The denouement is a very fine piece of action writing… Horowitz has done splendidly.

Scotsman

Straight away Horowitz is able to capture Fleming’s flowing style and intricate details from how Bond likes his eggs in the morning to the cars he drives... He’s just as faithfully suave as in the original novels.

Daily Express

A novel that feels very like a filmfast-paced, skilfully writtenleaves you wanting more, and for serious Bond junkies [it] is the next fix in a long tale of addiction.

The Times

Even better than Trigger Mortisit is tremendous fun. Anthony Horowitz has the discipline and skill of a first-class action writer.

Sunday Express

Exciting high drama… Horowitz stays loyal to the fabulous Fleming formula. And for that he surely deserves another mission guiding the fortunes of the world’s favourite superspy.

Daily Express

[Horowitz's Bond] is once again in safe hands, not departing much from Fleming’s entertaining formula... Horowitz’s light touch and smooth plotting create something close to the ideal holiday read.

Irish Examiner

Anthony Horowitz writes Bond in the style of Fleming... Total brain candy in the best possible fashion.

Rick O'Shea, RTE Guide

Anthony Horowitz's second James Bond book will keep 007 obsessives happy with martinis, beautiful women and an enormously fat Corsican gangster.

The Times *Best New Novels*

Horowitz shows that he knows the Fleming books backwards, offering plot twists that are homages to the master's novels. This nicely imagined book... is an amusing and thought-provoking addition to the post-Fleming bond canon.

The Times *Audiobook of the Week*

An enjoyably compact thriller, with an absolutely killer last line.

Guardian

Forever and a Day is an explosive prequel to Casino Royale which promises to please Bond aficionados and a new legion of fans.

Northern Insight **Book of the Month**

This is another great new James Bond novel from Horowitz, who’s filling the shoes of Ian Fleming with apparent ease.

Trucking

Highly enjoyable.

Metro

Horowitz proves himself so adept at getting inside the iconic character, and Fleming’s writing style, that it’s difficult to see the join. Rip-roaringly recommended.

Pat Carty, Hot Press

Horowitz…captures the mood, pace and style of Fleming very well… the story thunders along with action galore in the Bond tradition. It whets the appetite for the 25th Bond film.

Alex Gordon, Peterborough Evening Telegraph

A rattling good thriller from an undoubted master of the genre.
