Devil May Care is the newest installment in the iconic James Bond series, to be released worldwide on Ian Flemings birthday, May 28 2008. Written by novelist Sebastian Faulks, Devil May Care is set in the cold war, picking up where Fleming left off in 1966 with Octopussy and The Living Daylights. Faulks, writing as Ian Fleming, has created the perfect continuation of the James Bond legacy. Devil May Care features all the glamour, thrills, and excitement that one would expect from any adventure involving Bond . . . James Bond.
"[S]uccessfully transporting us through breathtakingly perilous adventures on two continents. Faulks's Bond has matured, but though widowed and wiser, he has not lost his taste for the ladies. Another fine round of vodka martinis, shaken not stirred." - Barnes & Noble.
"Starred Review. The authors real accomplishment is in recreating the tone and feel of the Fleming novels: the travelogue is terrific, and Bonds confidence in his mission is part of the characters enduring appeal. This may not be a James Bond for fans of the movie franchise, but its a great new addition to the Fleming canonand should encourage readers to rediscover James Bond." - Publishers Weekly.
