'Slim build; eyes: blue; hair: black, expert pistol shot, boxer, knife thrower; does not use disguises'. Every major foreign government has a file on James Bond. Now Russia's deadly SMERSH organization has targeted him for elimination - they have the perfect bait in ravishing agent Tatiana Romanova. Her mission is to lure Bond to Istanbul, allowing her superiors to do the rest. Bond, however, walks willingly into the trap, leading to a deadly game of cross and double-cross.

Born in 1908 and educated at Eton and Sandhurst, Fleming joined Reuters News Agency in 1931. During WW2 he was Personal Assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence at the Admiralty, rising from the rank of Lieutenant to Commander. He built his house, Goldeneye (where he wrote his first Bond novel), in Jamaica when he became Foreign Manager of Kemsley Newspapers. By the time of his death in 1964, he had sold over forty million books, and the cult of Bond was internationally established.From AudioFile:
Robert Whitfield delivers an entertaining performance of one of Fleming's best 007 novels. Using a rich palette of international voices and accents, Whitfield takes an engaging story and infuses it with the additional drama that only a fine actor can provide. His deadpan delivery of the cliff-hanger ending makes the listener hope that Blackstone's next Fleming release will be Dr. No, the follow-up to this 1957 novel. The recording quality is good, although there are some minor volume fluctuations, and the tape breaks are poorly planned. But these quibbles do not detract from the overall high quality.
