Ev­ery few years, the Ian Flem­ing Es­tate in­vites an au­thor to pen a new James Bond novel. An­thony Horowitz’s Trig­ger Mor­tis cen­tres around an un­used Flem­ing

idea of a Rus­sian plot to kill Stir­ling Moss dur­ing an F1 race, de­vel­oped to a larger, more epic scale. Set in 1957, this is res­o­lutely Flem­ing’s lit­er­ary Bond rather than the cin­e­matic ver­sion, and this spirit and style is cap­tured well. The rac­ing scenes, with a Maserati 250F at the Nur­bür­gring are, very com­pelling. Else­where, 007’s pe­riod-cor­rect Bent­ley MkIV is in ac­tion and the vil­lain is suit­ably chill­ing and grandly ne­far­i­ous. By far the best of the re­cent Bond books.
