Jeffery Deaver to write the next James Bond novel

This past Friday, the 102nd anniversary of Ian Fleming's birth, Fleming's estate announced American thriller writer Jeffery Deaver as author of the next James Bond novel (after 2008's Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks). While Faulks's novel was set in 1969, Deaver's novel will be set in present day, take place over a short period of time, and find Bond in three or four exotic locales.

Deaver also said it would, "maintain the persona of James Bond as Fleming created him and the unique tone the author brought to his books".
