Summary

"People notice things and word around Whitehall is that Commander Bond is living a shade dangerously - gambling, the new Bentley, er...ladies, money changing hands...."

Following scandal and his shock resignation from Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, James Bond becomes a gun for hire; able, and willing, to sell his lethal skills to the highest bidder. And SPECTRE, it seems, are eager to have the disgraced British super spy on their payroll.

But before he can be fully embraced by his new employer - and deadliest enemy - 007 must first prove his loyalty. And in doing so he must threaten with nuclear annihilation everything he has fought his whole life to defend. Until honor is fully restored....

Gardner's stunning reinvention of Bond secured critical acclaim and blockbusting sales around the world. Role of Honour, the fourth book in the series, kept 007 at No.1.

Nothing special but perfectly good.

Fairly standard for this sort of Bond book. Plenty of description, a nonsense villain and some cars and women. If you want some entertaining pulp this is for you! I enjoyed it.

Very Good and relevant 007

Fine story by Mr. Gardner with believable characters and Bond at his Best! I enjoyed the ride via podcast.
