Sir Michael Caine has written his first fiction novel at the age of 90.

The Hollywood actor said in a statement that he was “delighted” to announce his debut thriller novel, titled Deadly Game, due to arrive on 23 November.

“It’s been my ambition for years to write a thriller,” the Batman Begins star stated in a press release for the book. “It’s the genre I most love to read, and I’ve really got a buzz out of working on Deadly Game and teaming up with Hodder once again to publish it.”

“I hope readers enjoy getting to know Harry Taylor as much as I did,” he added.

Published by Hodder and Stoughton, the novel would follow DCI Harry Taylor: a detective with no respect for red tape or political reputations.

While Deadly Game marks Caine’s first foray into fiction, he has previously released non-fiction books including What’s It All About?, The Elephant to Hollywood, and Blowing the Bloody Doors Off: And Other Lessons in Life.

The Oscar-winning actor, who has appeared in more than 160 films, celebrated his 90th birthday in March by hosting a gathering in London, which was attended by guests including Tom Cruise and David Walliams.
