Jeffery Deaver to write James Bond novel

28th May 2010

US crime writer Jeffery Deaver is set to dust off James Bond's dinner jacket and put him back in action in a new adventure.

Deaver's novel, which has the temporary working title Project X, will be published in a year's time on what would have been Ian Fleming's 102nd birthday.

'I can't describe the thrill I felt when first approached by Ian Fleming's estate to ask if I'd be interested in writing the next book in the James Bond series,' Deaver said.

'The Bond books were important parts of my life,' he added.

Deaver, who has written 26 novels and sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, has already won the Crime Writers' Association Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for his 2004 book Garden of Beasts.

According to Corinne Turner, the managing director of Ian Fleming Publications, the prize-winning book 'demonstrated that he was not only a master of the contemporary American thriller but could also write compelling novels of period suspense', making him an ideal candidate for the next Bond novel.

However, Deaver still has a long way to go to catch up with Fleming in terms of book sales. He will have to rack up a further 80 million if he is to surpass the Casino Royale author.
