Bond is back, again - author Anthony Horowitz is writing a new 007 novel based on an idea by the secret agent's creator Ian Fleming.
The story, dubbed Project One, is inspired by Fleming's work for a proposed TV series about the secret agent that was never made.
It is the latest in a long line of books written after Fleming's death and will see Bond enter the glamorous world of 1950s motor racing.
Most of the television plot outlines were turned into short stories by Fleming but this one, called Murder on Wheels, was previously unknown.
Fleming's great-niece Jessie Grimond said:
Horowitz, whose screenwriting career includes Midsomer Murders and Foyle's War, is no stranger to thriller writing and has sold more than 19 million copies of his Alex Rider series about a teenage spy.
He has recently penned a new adventure for the master detective Sherlock Holmes.
The new book, which includes familiar characters M and Miss Moneypenny, is due for release next September and is the latest instalment of a series that began more than 50 years ago when Fleming wrote Dr No.
