William Boyd has revealed the name of his new official James Bond novel.
Solo will be the title of the 1969-set spy adventure, which will take 007 across Europe, Africa and the USA. Boyd, who announced the title at this year's London Book Fair, said that he has had "tremendous fun" penning the story.
"Mark my words, I've undertaken writing this very seriously," he said, adding: "No gimmicks, this is a real spy story."
The Fleming estate has continued to publish 007 novels, recruiting writers including Sebastian Faulks (Devil May Care) and Jeffrey Deaver (Carte Blanche) to continue the British spy's story. Bond movie producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have kept the character's screen adventures separate from the literary continuity.
