Novelist William Boyd has been recruited to pen the latest adventure of 007 superspy James Bond.
Boyd follows in the footsteps of authors including Kingsley Amis and Sebastian Faulks who have both written new Bond books since the death of his creator, Ian Fleming, in 1964.
No details of the plot or the book's title have been revealed but Boyd said it would be set in 1969.

Boyd said he was "intrigued" by Fleming who he used as a character in his novel Any Human Heart and had worked with three of the men who have played the secret agent - Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. He added:
Boyd has written 11 novels with many of them, including A Good Man In Africa and Any Human Heart, adapted for film and television.
The book will be published next year, which is the 60th anniversary of the publication of Fleming's first James Bond novel Casino Royale.
Fleming wrote 14 Bond books and the series has continued since his death with more than 100 million titles sold.
