LONDON --A catsuited model in stiletto heels strode the deck of a British warship with Royal Navy helicopters roaring overhead. It was not a bout of naval hijinks, but the year's most-hyped literary event -- the publication of a new adventure for super-spy James Bond.
The larger-than-life launch Tuesday of the novel "Devil May Care" proves that 100 years after the birth of 007 creator Ian Fleming, the Bond brand is stronger than ever.
And guess who's coming back to the big screen this fall.
In addition to the Fleming centenary, the latest 007 movie, "Quantum of Solace," is due for release in the fall.
