Solo: A James Bond Novel by William Boyd

It is 1969 and James Bond is about to go solo, recklessly motivated by revenge.

A seasoned veteran of the service, 007 is sent to single-handedly stop a civil war in the small West African nation of Zanzarim.  Aided by a beautiful accomplice and hindered by the local militia, he undergoes a scarring experience which compels him to ignore M’s orders in pursuit of his own brand of justice.  Bond’s renegade action leads him to Washington, D.C., where he discovers a web of geopolitical intrigue and witnesses fresh horrors.

Even if Bond succeeds in exacting his revenge, a man with two faces will come to stalk his every waking moment.

Peer & Press Reviews

It’s good to report that Boyd has immersed himself in the character, the author and his oeuvre and come up with an Afro-American adventure that’s triumphantly the equal of the great Bond adventures, Casino Royale and From Russia, with Love.  Boyd IS Bond.

The Guardian

Manages to enrich and refresh a character we thought we knew too well.  Solo is a terrific twisting thriller – just when you smugly think you have spotted a huge hole in the plot, Boyd turns it breathtakingly around.
