This is one of the more intriguing back stories to a novel being released years after an author’s death that you’ll ever hear. Back in the ‘90s Donald Westlake worked up an outline to a James Bond movie that would have been the follow up to Goldeneye, but for various Ho...

So, what went wrong here ? It started (many years ago) with a screenplay for a James Bond film that the producers never used. Sensibly, Donald Westlake turned his unused script into a novel. Of course, without copyright to 007, he made the novel with his own characters. So far so good.

3 1/2 stars. Nice solid work from Westlake. With it being a Hard Case Crime collection I had to read it as I'm a die hard HCC fan.

Nearly a decade after his death, Donald E. Westlake, has a new book on the shelves. FOREVER AND A DEATH was released on June 13th by Hard Case Crime. The story was at one point almost BOND 18. Westlake was hired by EON to write the new James Bond film. Westlake’s idea was to have the story center...
