4.0 out of 5 stars Ice Ice Baby, 4 May 2009
This review is from: Icebreaker (Hardcover)
Often billed as the strongest in John Gardner's series of official James Bond novels, Icebreaker is the third by Gardner, and has all the series' usual elements - fast cars, gorgeous women, criminal masterminds - plus Bond's allies, the crusty 'M' and the delectable Miss Moneypenny.

This time around, Bond is the target of a nefarious organisation that want his head - literally - and the story is full of twists and turns; deception and deceit. A decent read but somewhat lacking in originality; if you're looking for a way into the series try Sebastian Faulkes' awesome 2008 Bond novel 'Devil May Care' first.

A customer says:
Not sure where or when the Captain read Icebreaker, but my take on it and Mr Faulkes' tome could not be more opposite. Icebreaker was indeed the best of the Gardner Bond novels with non-stop action, a very strong storyline and solid characters. As far as "Devil May Care" goes, I will demur on in depth criticism of the Captain's misplaced favor of it and simply point out that the decision of the Fleming group to move on to another writer rather than have Sebastian write a follow-up should say all that needs to be said
