There are loads of them! Private eye's already picked up on the sly reference to Rupert Murdoch ("I could have taken over one of your newspapers Meeester Bond, replaced the editor with one who hates England...but it would have been too slow, too slow") but I also liked the reference to Kermit coming out to Iran to discuss removing the Shah under the codename "Mr Green" and being unable to stick to the codename (It's not easy being Green.) Altogether....Groan!
A pity Faulks didn't concentrate more on getting his spycraft right. Among other bad plot devices and sloppy action, he mentions SMERSH as if they were still active yet they'd merged into another pre-KGB organisation long before the period in which DMC is set. See my Amazon review. Nobody seems to ask where the title came from!
I'd also noticed the goof where SMERSH has seemingly come back into being. Also, did you notice that Bond's secretary Loelia Ponsonby is back in her old job even though she left near the end of Fleming's books and was replaced by Mary Goodnight.
