McKay tells the unlikely story of how Eon Productions, the owners of the Bond franchise, has kept James Bond at the top of the charts for fifty years when originally only three or four films were planned. He describes how the Bond brand has been managed over the years and tells the inside stories of the vivid supporting cast, from Bond girls and Bond villains to Bond cars and Bond gadgetry. 

Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver

This new thriller by Deaver, bestselling author of the Lincoln Rhyme series, features 007 as you've never seen him before.  Set in the present day, Carte Blanche finds the iconic British spy engaging a horrific modern villain in a cat-and-mouse chase that takes him from the Balkans and London to the African Continent.
