About the Author

ANTHONY HOROWITZ is the author of the US bestselling Magpie Murders and The Word is Murder, and one of the most prolific and successful writers in the English language; he may have committed more (fictional) murders than any other living author. His novel Trigger Mortis features original material from Ian Fleming. His most recent Sherlock Holmes novel, Moriarty, is a reader favorite; and his bestselling Alex Rider series for young adults has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide. As a TV screenwriter, he created both Midsomer Murders and the BAFTA-winning Foyle's War on PBS. Horowitz regularly contributes to a wide variety of national newspapers and magazines, and in January 2014 was awarded an OBE.


"Impressive.... The sturdy plot involves a suitably diabolical and grandiose scheme. An excellent mimic of Fleming's prose, Horowitz delivers an entertainment sure to please James Bond fans."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Great fun...[for] readers who can't get enough of James Bond at his coolest and suave-est."--Seattle Times
"Horowitz...delivers the tersely precise prose that makes Bond so compelling, but more than that, he also supplies touches of Fleming's cruel poetry.... A brisk and effective ride."--The Guardian
"The heart of any good thriller is the plot, and...Horowitz doesn't disappoint. The action moves with high velocity.... Also stays true to the Bond of Fleming's books."--New York Times Book Review
"As Bond-villain plots go, this is a clever one.... There are more than enough pleasures for even the strictest Bond aficionado in Trigger Mortis.... The book barely puts a foot wrong..."--Wall Street Journal
"In Horowitz's expert and mischievous hands, Bond hasn't been scolded into becoming all things to all people. Instead, he's still Bond, James Bond, license to do what he damn well likes.... Brilliant.... Thank goodness Mr. Horowitz has delivered us a great new story."--Matthew Dunn,
"If Anthony Horowitz's byline weren't on the cover, readers could bring themselves to believe that the new James Bond thriller actually came from the late Ian Fleming's typewriter. Trigger Mortis fits seamlessly among the original Cold War-era gems.... Bona fide Bond in every way."--Fort Worth Star-Telegram
"A new James Bond novel shakes and stirs the notoriously anachronistic superspy."
"Horowitz has written a humdinger of a Bond story, so cunningly crafted and thrillingly paced that 007's creator would have been happy to have owned it...from his brilliant first chapter on, Horowitz is a pitch-perfect mimic of the Fleming one-line punch....He even gets the clichés spot on."--Simon Schama, Financial Times
"It's quickly apparent that Horowitz is doing something both clever and audacious.... Very much of its period.... A clever and enjoyable pastiche, which manages to press many of the buttons that were the purview of 007's creator.... There will surely be an appetite for more outings à la Horowitz."--The Independent (UK)
"...promises to be the best Fleming homage yet."--Publishers Weekly
