Overview

For the first time in trade paperback—with new introductions—the novels that began John Gardner's career as the author of the thrilling James Bond 007 series.
In License Renewed, the most famous secret agent in the world pits his nerve and cunning against a dangerously deranged opponent—one prepared to sacrifice most of the Western world to prove that only he can make it safe from accidental holocaust. As the seconds tick away on the valued Rolex Oyster Perpetual, the world comes nearer this ironic annihilation; Bond comes nearer a frightful death and ever nearer Miss Lavender Peacock.

Editorial Reviews

Financial Times
“No fan will fail to be caught up in the world-scale adventure of License Renewed. The dear old formula of the Mad Scientist is also renewed, with great success; and the Girl—with a splendidly improbable name of course—is a worthy addition to the famous gallery of Bond's beauties.”
Sunday Telegraph
“A remarkably successful recreation of everybody’s favorite action man.”
MI6forums.co.uk (James Bond Fan Site)
“The detail to this novel is superb, rivaling Mr. Fleming's master touch. The characters are fully developed and he introduces a few long staying characters like Q'ute—Major Boothroyd's assistant. The action, torture scene and final climatic fight onboard the plane were masterfully handled.”

Meet the Author

Thriller writer John Gardner(1926-2007)
had fifty-five books to his credit when he passed away, many of them bestsellers, which include his trilogy of James Moriarty novels.

Between 1996 and 2002, Raymond Benson assumed the mantel of writing the 007 novels. He wrote six Bond novels during that time and three film novelizations. His James Bond Bedside Companion was nominated for an Edgar award. Pegasus Books has brought Benson's Bond books back into print in two collections: James Bond: The Union Trilogy and James Bond: Choice of Weapons.
