Not the best of the Gardner James Bond books.
on 13 October 2012
But still entertaining enough.
Gardner clearly felt at this time that he was ready to make Bond his own. Consequently James Bond is absent for large parts of the book.
There are twists and turns as the CIA, KGB and Bond are all after the same thing and the whole plot gets tangled up but neatly untangled at the end.
A lovely re-issue by Orion books.
