Summary

When the body of a mysterious woman is found to be carrying the phone number of James Bond, Bond is called in by M to help the investigation. But before he can even reach headquarters he is nearly run off the road in a high-speed motorway chase. Someone wants Bond dead.

Then Bond discovers that the woman was a member of a cult society known as "The Meek Ones," with murky links to a wealthy arms dealer. Soon, hideous acts of terrorism begin to roll out across Britain and Bond finds himself in a race against time to track down the faceless criminal behind the horror....

Definitely not the most exciting story featuring James bond I have listened too

The story at the beginning was mysterious, and exciting. However, I expected the climax and ending of it to be much better.

The audio performance by Simon Vance was extremely well done. Which is the best evidence that a great audio performance is no substitute for a great story from the beginning to the end.

James Bond vs Suicide Bombings

John Gardner writes spy novels that happen to feature James Bond. This one has Bond going against an arms dealer who also runs a religious cult that produces suicide bombers.

Takes about two hours to get moving but then the horror and suspense starts and you get going to the finish. No luxury or exotic locations, just a macabre and brutal psycological thriller.

One of the better Gardner Bond books and very well performed by Simon Vance.
