about

James Bond is challenged by a maniacal superfiend: the world’s cleverest, cruelest criminal. A beautiful golden girl turns up dead, and a friendly game of two-handed canasta turns into a deadly game of survival.
IAN LANCASTER FLEMING (1908-1964) was born in London and educated at Eton and Sandhurst. During World War II, he served in British Naval Intelligence, playing a key role in shaping the prototype CIA. His wide-ranging, fast-paced life would provide the backdrop for his beloved spy novels featuring the perennially charming James Bond."

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Loving It I appreciated that this is a story from a time when being a secret agent wasn?t all about blowing things up. Because of this the novel was much more interesting and thought provoking. Fleming does not heedlessly race from scene to scene demolishing everything in his wake, but rather develops his scenes meticulously, both in the foreground and in the background. By giving us the hows and whys of everything Fleming drew me deeper and deeper into this world. Fleming?s meticulous development is seen in his characters as well. We go into the story with the assumption that we?ve met Bond before (and in this day in age, who hasn?t, even if just from the movies). That said, Fleming ensures that we get to know him quite well in this novel. His mannerisms are so unique and well done that you could pick him out of a crowd anywhere just from a description. I also appreciated the way that the rest of the cast was presented and developed. Everything was done gradually, allowing readers the time to get acquainted with the individuals. I will admit, this is my first foray into the world of 007 (in literary form anyways). It most definitely will not be my last. This is a series that should be read in order, but I thoroughly enjoyed this as a standalone none the less.
