Faithful Exciting Re-boot,
This review is from: Carte Blanche: A James Bond Novel (James Bond Novels) (Hardcover)
I like Deaver and I love Bond, how would this fair? Actually very, very well. Its a re-boot, but the characters remain from the Flemming books. It captures very well Bond early optimistic view of life, more noble, less dark than he will become. There were some wonderful nods to previous books (both Flemming and others, ie more "gastly than gastro" from Licence Renewed.) If it were within my gift I would have Deaver write a few more and explore the darker, but noble older Bond. Very well written, absoulute page tuner. Thank you Mister Deaver I've been expecting great things of you - and you have not failed!
