The next best thing to Ian Fleming
Thereafter I bought each Bond novel on publication, and continued to enjoy them, even while recognising that the books got worse after Blofeld and Spectre replaced Smersh as chief villain. Fleming-Bond long ago became a business, a very successful brand. Now the baton has been handed to Anthony Horowitz. Few could be better qualified. In short, he is a thorough professional, and this New Bond is up there with the better Old Bonds. He has had the nice idea of going back to the beginning.
I was weaned on Ian Fleming as a preteen and teenager. I devoured his novels about the British secret agent with the license to kill. I loved Mr. James Bond fought the good fight against Soviet killers, international criminals and malicious madmen. Horowitz is also an Ian Fleming aficionado and he knows a good deal about Ian Fleming and his iconic character, James Bond.
Get A Copy
There is no tiresome origin novel featuring a teenage Bond experimenting with murder techniques on small forest animals. To the reader of Fleming, Bond is a fully formed force of nature, elegantly inevitable. His test run, the killing in Stockholm of a wartime traitor, is adjudged to have gone well though it is a rather unnecessarily messy stabbing , so off the new is dispatched to find out exactly what is going on in the south of France. This is, then, Bond Begins. It is, naturally, not long before he meets a femme who might or might not be fatale.
