Sebastian Faulks does not spring to mind as the perfect author for a new James Bond novel but Devil May Care is a cracking read.
Faulks (writing as Ian Fleming) takes up the story of Bond in the sixties and this is a tired Bond. Time is catching up with him and he is starting to question his place in the scheme of things. But once the bad guys start to threaten Bond is more than up to the task of dealing with them. A plot involving heroin, the USSR, the Middle East and a treacherous doctor enables Bond to travel to various hot-spots and do what he does best.
If you like this sort of thing then you will enjoy this fun read.
