Land Rover is a classic worthy of the finest prose. By partnering with British writer William Boyd, the performance vehicle manufacturer brings his next book to the world in keeping with their foremost ideals. Ghanaian-born Boyd has always been a master of intrigue and suspense. His earliest works charted his heroes’ paths through his birthplace in West Africa. In his subsequent career, Boyd has taken on some of the most beloved characters of his new home in Europe.
The Vanishing Game is Boyd’s latest work, following the success of his James Bond revival novels. In earlier works, Boyd used Bond author Ian Fleming as a character. His affection for and familiarity with the real-world author’s mystique and individuality made him a natural fit for a new Bond novel, and for his recent partnership with Land Rover. Like his characters, Land Rover stands for adventure and perseverance in the face of challenging terrains and circumstances. To come out conquering on the other side is Land Rover’s MO, and their legacy.
Like the Bond series, Land Rovers last. Their construction and design are a tradition of excellence and strength. In constructing their newest models, Land Rovers’ engineers consult the choices and innovations that have made their earlier designs classics for generations. In the same way, Boyd worked with Sean Connery and Daniel Craig in preparing his addition to the Bond canon. The Vanishing Game is a work of its own, but carries with it the same ethos, attention to detail, and excitement that make Boyd and Land Rover reliable greatness for the adventurous.
