"Written by Sebastian Faulks in the "style of" Ian Fleming,…"
Written by Sebastian Faulks in the "style of" Ian Fleming, this is not a pastiche, but more a faithful homage to Fleming's books. The action starts where Fleming's last novel, "The Man with the Golden Gun", leaves off - Bond is on sabbatical, still mourning the death of his wife Tracey, murdered by Blofeld, and recovering from battling Scaramanga in Jamaica.
Witout giving away the plot, this has all the ingredients of a "proper" Bond novel - the laconic hero, the strange villain (all to ready to tell Bond of his master plans), the gorgeous girls, the amazing gadgets (a giant hovercraft/plane that travels at 250mph!).
It isn't literature, but it's a wild ride. Treat your dad to a bit of escapism!Read moreLess
