It is M’s funeral. One man is missing from the graveside: the traitor who pulled the trigger and who is now in custody, accused of M’s murder – James Bond.

The collaboration began in 2015 with the Sunday Times bestseller Trigger Mortis, followed by Forever and a Day in 2018 – a Sunday Times number one bestseller.
