The future of the James Bond franchise is currently shrouded in mystery. The recent No Time To Die marked a triumphant and tragic end to Daniel Craig’s journey as 007. There is currently a lot of speculation about Bond’s ever-changing odds, but an official announcement has now revealed the future of Bond. the James Bond book franchise. .
Ian Fleming’s official Instagram and Twitter accounts recently posted news of James Bond’s upcoming book.
The cover of the book was revealed with its title: With A Mind to Kill. The novel’s release date has also been announced for May 26, 2022.
This is the first Bond book to be released since 2018. It was titled Forever and a Day and was written by famous spy writer Anthony Horowitz.

It reads: “Behind the Iron Curtain, a group of former Smersh agents want to use the British spy in an operation that will change the balance of world power. Bond is smuggled into the lion’s den – but whose orders he follows, and will he obey them when the moment of truth arrives? On a mission where betrayal is everywhere and one wrong move means death, Bond must grapple with the darkest questions about himself. But even he doesn’t know what happened to the man he was. “
Bond’s new book cover also conjures up an intrigue.
The image shows a bullet hole in the glass – could this be a clue to the mystery of M’s death? Or just captivating images for the next international spy book?

A larger blurb has been written on Ian Fleming’s official website. It reads: “Behind the Iron Curtain, a group of former Smersh agents want to use the British spy in an operation that will change the balance of world power.
“Bond is smuggled into the lion’s den – but who is he following orders, and will he obey them when the moment of truth arrives?”
