By a long shot an outstanding history on the unfortunate fate of this family. An easy and exciting read. This book is very well researched. Almost a century ago this event of barbarity took place and yet today continues to evoke major interest. Very many reasons to read and vivid to the end.
As good a read throughout on the personality of a second son. That is only one early aspect to it. However James Bond as the future character shines off the pages. Pearson knew Fleming well and brought much to life in this biography on him and readers of James Bond books should find an entertaining insight to his creator. Only my view, and I found it a terrific read.
one of those books that holds your attention until the final sentence. a truly gripping account of the sinking of a u.s navy ship in 1945 and its consequences. a splendid read throughout and written by a fine writer too.
