Trigger Mortis a 007 James Bond Book by Anthony Horowitz

Published by Hachette New Zealand

Trigger Mortis is a suitable edition to the James Bond library.  Anthony Horowitz has combined material from Ian Fleming with his own to create a thrilling adventure that has all the hallmarks of a good Bond spy thriller. 

As in all good Bond Books the villains have larger than life traits that are easily engage the reader’s imagination.   The novel itself weaves effortlessly from exciting chase scenes to tight spots as Bond applies his espionage expertise to defuse potential terrorist attacks that, if not for Bond’s British brilliance, would without doubt change the world forever.

Even when negotiating the lethal world of Grand Prix and an attempt by Russia to sabotage a race on the most dangerous track in Europe Bond manages to remain calm enough to keep one eye on track and the other on the ladies.  Pussy Galore returns making a gold standard impact. As you would expect from a former head of a criminal organisation Pussy Galore has done her research on Bond…she knows how Bond likes his eggs cooked.

Horowitz should be commended for keeping the fun and feuds of the world within her Majesties Service alive and well.
