When 007 goes to Harlem, it's not just for the jazz. This is the kingdom of Mr Big, master of crime, voodoo baron, partner in SMERSH's grim company of death. Those Mr Big cannot possess he crushes - like his beautiful prisoner, Solitaire, and her would-be saviours James Bond and Agency man Felix Leiter. All three are marked out as victims in a trail of terror, treachery, and torture that leads from New York's underworld to the shark-infested island in the sun that Mr Big calls his own.

This is a fantastic bond story. From America to Jamaica its a page turning adventure. Roy kinnear does a great job reading it coping well with a variety of US accents
"Totally failed to grip me"
Ian Flemming's books are not much like the movies, this I knew and accepted.
However, choice of a good narrator can make a heck of a difference to te excitement levels of a book.
Flemming's writing has the potential to be a gripping thriller to listen to, but this felt like it was being read by 'Derek from Accounts' trying to be interesting.
I'll try the others in this new set of releases, but this was a fail.
