4.0 out of 5 stars A sting in the tale (oh c'mon it was obvious wasn't it?!), 14 May 2009
This review is from: Scorpius (Ian Fleming's James Bond) (Hardcover)
Back cover blurb:
'A young girl's body is fished out of the Thames. Very sad but not so extraordinary. That is, not until Special Branch discover two unusual items. The only telephone number in the late Emma Dupre's diary was Bond's; also a new kind of credit card. Apparently legitimate but unknown.
Emma, well-connected, ex-junkie, had also been involved with a new religious sect - The Society of the Meek Ones led by the charismatic Father Valentine. The society upholds traditional moral values and is harmless. Or is it? Why does Father Valentine have links with Vladimir Scorpius, the vanished international arms dealer?
James Bond is called in to unravel the threads with the help of the beautiful Harriet Horner, in a labyrinthine tale which brings him face to face with the most sadistic and evil opponent of his career.

Scorpio, first published in 1988, is one of John Gardner's better James Bond novels. The elusive Father Valentine makes a worthy adversary for our hero, and all the classic Ian Fleming traits are intact for the world's most famous spy.
