First edition. Published to celebrate the centenary of Ian Fleming’s birth on 28 May 1908, Devil May Care was written by Sebastian Faulks as Ian Fleming, and ‘is a masterful continuation of the James Bond legacy — an electrifying new chapter in the life of the most iconic spy of literature and film. Picking up where Fleming left off, Sebastian Faulks takes Bond back to the height of the Cold War in a story of almost unbearable pace and tension. Devil May Care not only captures the very essence of Fleming’s original novels but also shows Bond facing dangers with a powerful relevance to our own times’ (dustwrapper blurb). 

Devil May Care was one of the fastest-selling bestsellers published by Penguin, and won the British Book Awards Popular Fiction Award for 2009.
