Description

James Bond as you've never sen him before...in the smashing new thriller and #1 international bestseller from Jeffrey Deaver.

A Night Action alert calls James Bond away from dinner with a beautiful woman. Headquarters has decrypted an electronic whisper—plans for a devastating attack:

Casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.

James Bond, in his early thirties and already a veteran of the Afghan War, has been recruited to a new organization. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of MI5, MI6, and the Ministry of Defense, its very existence deniable. Its aim: to protect the Realm, by any means necessary.

And Agent 007 has been given carte blanche to do whatever it takes to fulfill his mission...

    Far too much digression to wines, food and bling as oppose to the plot. Audiences are more attune to the dynamics and strength of the story and characters nowadays than the name dropping cliches of 50 years ago

    The Bond nuances of his preferred drink and his Omega watch were changed which was a bummer to a fan. He did however have the E type jaguar and the Walter PPK S which were good enough for me. Really enjoyed this book and will certainly read more Bond books from Deaver!!
  • Bond at his best

    This is an excellent novel and in many respects exceeds Ian Flemings Bond. Deaver has captured the quintessential JB. A great read.

    Somehow this book fails to engage me. The text is too distant, and there are too many needless facts. If someone flares up like a landmine, what do we care whether it was an MK-80 landmine (or whatever it was). Reminds me of a cheap novel hero who at some point declared "I wish I would sink a hundred miles into the ground" -presumably out of shame of some sort. The translator had put in an footnote: "That would be English miles", as if that made the least bit of difference. Also, I am getting tired of Deaver's plot device of the hero being hopelessly caught by the baddie, only to escape by some ten-minute-earlier insight which is hidden from the reader. This is more and more common in his books, Bond or the quadriplegic superman. Too predictable. All in all, I finished this book only because i had a cold, and was bedridden. I wll admit that reading an eBook isnever as gripping for me as the real thing, maybe this has an effect here.
  • Great new look at bond!

    This novel, while not the same as the Ian Fleming story, offers a fresh, 21st Century reinvention of James Bond. It's current day look at the world of covert espionage makes for a riveting story from beginning to end. I liked it!
  • Great book.

    I had read only the Fleming Bond; none of the posthumous writers. I was not sure what to expect here. What a pleasant surprise. This book is like what Hollywood would call a re- imagining of the Bond story. Set in modern times Deaver brings enough of Flemings touches to bear, but makes Bond a contemporary character. I loved it, and I hope Mr. Deaver is retained to write more. Fans should get this book.
