Product Description

Book Description

A series of official, original Bond books written by the acclaimed thriller writer, John Gardner.

About the Author

After Kingsley Amis John Gardner was the next writer to be asked by Glidrose (now IFPL) to write further adventures of James Bond. He wrote, like Fleming, fourteen Bond books, plus novelisations of the films GoldenEye and Licence to Kill, from 1981 to 1996.

Before becoming an author of fiction in the early 1960s John Gardner was variously a stage magician, a Royal Marine officer, a journalist and, for a short time, a priest in the Church of England. In all, Gardner had fifty-five novels to his credit - many of them best-sellers - before he died in August 2007.

Format: Paperback
Critics who'd mauled Fleming in the 60s spent the 80s complaining that Gardner wasn't him: they praised his 'straight' spy fiction, but merely acknowledged the bestselling success of his Bond novels. In the 90s this had waned, with less publicity accompanying the release of each book and reviewers often not bothering. Gardner himself endured serious illness, while 1991's left field The Man from Barbarossa (James Bond) had been unpopular both with public and publishers. How brilliant then that such a strong contender for his best Bond should follow.

Score: 9/10. Bond and partner of the week, CIA agent, Elizabeth 'Easy' StJohn (don't ask) fly off to investigate/ rescue the surviving members of Cabal: once the western intelligence commmunity's most successful network, its members are dying. It's a very Gardner set up, almost a rerun of No Deals, Mr. Bond (James Bond) but even faster. Even the 'death' themed chapters (contrived but fun) and Diamonds Are Forever quote/title aims to please fans. Conscious decision or not (to return to a winning formula) it works. Like No Deals and Scorpius (James Bond) it resembles an old fashioned spy caper or Hitchcock cold war thriller. Nearly every scene ends in a twist or showdown. It imbues 007 with all the spyworld tradecraft Gardner loved, while using the agents and agencies (as Fleming did) as players in an international game of cloak & dagger/ cowboys & indians.

Format: Paperback
After one or two lacklustre volumes in the John Gardner James Bond series it is this book which put a bit more oomph back in.
In this one Bond discovers a plot to blow up the Channel Tunnel (which at the time of publication was still two years away from being opened) when a fleet World leaders would be travelling through it.
I really liked this one. Gardner seemed to find his love of the character again and I rattled through it in no time.
Still silly, escapist fun but then that's what I like in my books.

Post cold war but the commies don't seem to have got the message. Former members of a ring that has been disbanded keep being hunted down.Only the deputy head of the former East German Intelligence Service would appear to have any motive. Classic tale with plane flights, train journeys and killers on the loose from Germany to Paris and Venice the action never stops. Gardner has again captured the essence of Bond and brought him into the 21st century.

I am a Bond fan and it is only since having had the KIndle that I have realised how many books there are. It did take some time to get into the book and perhaps the plot took some time to fully understand. However it was still a good read but I have read better Bond books written by John Gardner.
