James Bond's Solo mission: William Boyd reveals new book title 

Hat tip to Fred Blosser.

People are making a lot to do about the author's not knowing about Fleming;s connection to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. or that he had a character named Mr. Solo in Goldfinger.

When I read the news item, I had the same reaction as the comments that Randy cites. Plus, there's a perfectly fine action thriller by Jack Higgins titled SOLO.

Bond going rogue was done in at least three of the Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig movies, so hardly a novel idea. Maybe it'll be better than the mediocre Deaver pastiche, at least.
