Review by twiglet12
I wasn’t expecting to, but I really enjoyed this book. I certainly enjoyed it more than Sebastian Faulks’ attempt with Devil May Care. Although Bond gets a reboot in much the same way as he did in the films, Jeffery Deaver has managed to stick fairly faithfully to the style and rhythm of the Fleming’s creation and the book contains many of the joys that the original novels provided; the sensual delights of fine food, expensive liquor, fast cars and flirtatious encounters with women, the fascinating details of tradecraft and the opportunity to be introduced to different countries, cultures and industries. This is the first time I have read a Jeffery Deaver novel and if his other books have the same way of making it impossible to put the book down at the end of a chapter, then I am more than tempted to pick up one of his own creations.
