Reading progress update: I've read 373 out of 414 pages.
Carte Blanche: The New James Bond Novel - Jeffery Deaver

darn! I should have read 50-60 more pages last night, and then I would have been able to wrap this up before starting work. well, I'll finish this at lunch-time (only really have to get to page 404). much has been revealed--I figured out something major, which was "attached" to something just as major which I had no clue about--so all that's left is for Bond to somehow escape his current awful predicament and, uh, take care of that last loose end...which I did not figure out.

Carte Blanche: The New James Bond Novel - Jeffery Deaver

at an earlier hour, I had mad fancies that I would finish this book as of today...but I seem to be conking out for the night, in terms of focus, so, tomorrow for the big finale. this has been a terrifically entertaining read. a villain as king of the recycling industry has led to some gloriously scummy locations for scenes, and his love of decay, aging, skulls and bodies, has given us another memorably twisted Bond baddie. I had a theory about the incident, code-named Gehenna, that the villain has planned for a specific day (which has now arrived, in terms of where the book is at, as of the last 100 pages), but just as Bond has had hard time discovering the crucial when-and-where aspects of the planned nightmare, so that he can save lives, I'm also in a bit of a fog...especially since I'm taking something as a late clue--but a late clue that has made me come up with an alternate theory of what Gehenna is, and whom it targets. Murphy's Law of course means both my clever theories will be proven wrong tomorrow!

only managed to get to a few pages this morning--but Bond has arrived in Cape Town, where he has been told he suddenly doesn't have carte blanche, and Hydt ponders a new business venture that shows there is no limit to his depravity

I don't know if 2017 has any more 4.5 or 5 Star reads for me--can't complain either way; it's been a great year of books--but this one sure is trying. I'm having so much fun!
