About the Book
‘In the world of espionage, giving an agent carte blanche on a mission comes with an enormous
amount of trust and constantly tests both personal and professional judgment. Part of the
nonstop suspense in the novel is the looming question of what is acceptable in matters of
national and international security. Are there lines that even James Bond should not cross?’The
novel will maintain the persona of James Bond as Fleming created him and the unique tone the
author brought to his books, while incorporating my literary trademarks: detailed research, fast
pacing and surprise twists.’—Jeffery Deaver.
Carte Blanche takes place in the present day over a short period of time, and sees Bond visit three
or four exotic locations around the globe, one of which is Dubai. As part of his latest assignment,
the modern-day secret agent travels with Emirates Airline and spends a number of thrilling
hours in Dubai both meeting up with an old friend and tracking a very disturbing villain.
The novel’s setting encompasses Deira and Port Saeed, and the history of the Emirates provides
an exciting backdrop for some heart-stopping action.
