Jeffery Deaver erweckt 007 wieder als den James Bond, den Ian Flemming einst geschaffen hat. James Bond - nun in der Gegenwart angesiedelt - geht erneut im Dienste der Krone zu Werk. Viele Menschen werden innerhalb einer Woche sterben, sollte es 007 nicht gelingen, einen teuflischen Gegener, der sich ausgerechnet in Großbritannien versteckt, auszuschalten.
Thousands will die.
It is not known where, or how, or who is behind the threat.
007 is given carte blanche to do anything necessary to protect his country, but there is no blank slate when innocent lives are at stake.
The only suspects are career killers with no care for civilian victims.
Bond must find out who is paying them, what they plan, and stop them.
And he has five days to do it.
The most impressive feature of CARTE BLANCHE is the ingenuity of the breathless, blood-thirsty plot . . . Kingsley Amis, John Gardner and Sebastian Faulks are among those who have tried to bring Bond back to life. Deaver, though, is in a class of his own: nobody's done it better. Evening Standard
