Despite a 12 July 2007 release date, the paperback edition of The Moneypenny Diaries: Secret Servant is now shipping online, reports the Young Bond Dossier.
Literary 007 fans can order the second novel in Samantha Weinberg’s (writing as Kate Westbrook) trilogy featuring the adventures of Jane Moneypenny at a discounted price of £3.99 at amazon.co.uk.
The official blurb runs:
From saving spies to private passions, this book covers the secret adventures of James Bond’s right-hand woman. Jane Moneypenny may project a cool, calm and collected image but her secret diaries reveal a rather different story. In the grip of an uncertain love affair and haunted by a dark family secret, the last thing she needs is a crisis at work.
But the Secret Intelligence Service is in chaos. One senior officer is on trial for treason, another has defected to Moscow and her beloved James Bond has been brainwashed by the KGB. Only a woman’s touch can save them.
Moneypenny soon finds herself embroiled in a highly-charged adventure infused with the glamour of the Cold War espionage game. Alone on a dangerous Russian mission she turns, with breathless intimacy, to writing a truly explosive private diary.
