Summary

Review
  • James Bond is in a race against time to break up a plot to kill thousands of people. Listeners follow Bond as his travels take him to Africa, where he infiltrates the headquarters of his latest adversary. Toby Stephens narrates this new James Bond story, in which Bond is bought into the 21st century. Stephens skillfully handles the fast-paced dialogue, keeping the plot moving even during the descriptions dotted throughout the book. Using subtle characterization, he voices a range of different accents--in particular, South African, American, and British. The iconic Bond, classic Deaver twists and turns, and Stephens's accomplished reading make this an exciting listen. K.J.P. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
  • /* Starred Review */ From the opening strains of Bond's signature movie theme music to the last shaken-not-stirred martini, the reader is drawn into the nonstop-action world of 007. Thanks to best-selling author Deaver, a longtime enthusiast of Ian Fleming's creation, the British spy is reintroduced with a wonderful modern flare. Both newcomers to the subgenre and traditionalists will find much to enjoy with the updated electronics, political framework, cliff-hanging situations, and, as always, bad men to fight. Actor Toby Stephens, who appeared as the villain in the Bond movie Die Another Day , provides a wonderful reading. Stephens has the most proper British accent, which is essential. For thriller, suspense, and spy lovers. [The S. & S. hc was an Editor's Spring Pick, LJ 2/15/11, and a New York Times best seller.—Ed.]— J. Sara Paulk, Wythe-Grayson Regional Lib., Independence, VA --J. Sara Paulk (Reviewed October 15, 2011) (Library Journal, vol 136, issue 17, p49)
