Carte Blanche

So the new Bond Book is called "Carte Blanche". Not bad, I suppose its something to do with him not crossing some lines in the killing and shagging dept. But that's the great thing about Bond is he can and does cross the line of acceptable norms, and he does it with style, that's the trademark. I hope Deaver who is my favourite thriller writer does not forget that.

Anyway if I was asked to write a Bond book or screenplay, I would call it "Goodnight to Midnight" afterthat I am open to suggestions, most stuff has been done, and the Islamists seem off the agenda so it looks a tough act to me, even Faulks had trouble with it and his was set in the sixties. Great title though, and that's the starting point for Bond.
