Solo is a new James Bond novel written by William Boyd.

The story takes place in 1969. Having just celebrated his forty-fifth birthday, James Bond is summoned to headquarters to receive an unusual assignment. Zanzarim, a troubled West African nation, is being ravaged by a bitter civil war, and M directs Bond to quash the rebels threatening the established regime.

Bond's arrival in Africa marks the start of a feverish mission to discover the forces behind this brutal war—and he soon realizes the situation is far from straightforward. Piece by piece, Bond uncovers the real cause of the violence in Zanzarim, revealing a twisting conspiracy that extends further than he ever imagined.

The book is available as a hardcover (336 pages), audio book and Kindle edition on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

I absolutely loved this book however hate that my US copy had deckled edges. This is the first and last book that I buy with deckled pages, I will not justify feathered pages any longer.
