Summary

It begins at a movie studio in Nice where a police raid goes horribly wrong, killing innocent men, women, and even children. It continues in an English prison, where a dead man discloses an intriguing secret about the brutal criminal organization called the Union. The trail leads James Bond to Paris, where he meets the tantalizing movie star Tylyn Mignonne and embarks on a voyage of sensual discovery.

But Tylyn is in mortal danger. Her husband, a volatile French film producer, has not forgiven his glamorous wife for ending their troubled marriage - and he is connected to the Union's thugs.

Meanwhile Bond's friend, French agent Mathis, has disappeared while tracking down the Union's mysterious leader, Le Gerant. Bond's journey takes him to a thrilling underwater brush with death, a chase through the Corsican wilderness, a surprise encounter with an old friend - and a final confrontation with a twisted criminal genius.

Narrator.....

Unfortunately the dour tone of the narrator makes what may well be an excellent book pretty much impossible to get in to.

Solid Bond Story

I definitely enjoyed the book. It started off a little bit slow, but as the book went on you realize that that was on purpose. They did a lot of defining and explaining that made it very easy to visualize the text. It was performed very well. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

Way too many illogical or impossible plot points

A few good scenes, but many ridiculous choices by characters and some serious plot errors.

Pretty good 007 book - feels like the real Bond

Keeps well within the style of Fleming. Pretty girls, fast cars, evil geniuses and armies of minions to dispatch. Narrator is the best.
