British novelist Sebastian Faulks has written a new Bond novel to mark the centenary of creator Ian Fleming's birth in 2008, Fleming's family announced Wednesday.
The new 007 adventure, "Devil May Care," will be published May 28 on what would have been Fleming's 100th birthday. The Fleming estate said the novel is set during the Cold War and involved espionage across two continents in "several of the world's most thrilling cities."
The family announced last year that it had commissioned a "well known and highly respected" writer to create a new adventure for the suave superspy, but had kept the author's identity secret.
Speculation had centered on thriller writers including John LeCarre and Frederick Forsyth.
