The sea keeps its secrets. But not this time. One body. Three bullets. 007 floats in the waters of Marseille, killed by an unknown hand. It’s time for a new agent to step up. Time for a new weapon in the war against organised crime.
It’s time for James Bond to earn his licence to kill. This is the story of the birth of a legend, in the brutal underworld of the French Riviera.
The novel will serve as a prequel to Casino Royale, and tell of the death of the preceding 007 before James Bond earns the title and is sent on his first assignment.
