Will you be shaken and stirred? Will Carte Blanche's licence to kill have you in Bond's gun sights? No no and NO What we get is Bond the bleeding heart liberal who wakes with night sweats and troubled conscience for sleeping with a woman when he may be falling for a work colleague WE get the errant Knight Sir Galahad who puts the beautiful and vulnerable date in a taxi and waves goodbye lest he be tempted to take advantageOMG WHy oh Why is Bond so wet?When you consider that Daniel Craig's Bond is just as nasty and selfish and unlikeable as the Ian Flemming original; yet brilliantly portrayed as a complicated and flawed and vulnerable adrenalin junkie; why do we get such a feeble and bland Bond in this book? So for that I took off another starThis would have made a fine novel in the mould of Lee Child's Jack Reacher if the author had not adopted the baggage of James Bond 007 and decided to call his character something different like JAMES BLAND

911 world it operates independent of MI5 MI6 and the Ministry of Defense its very existence deniable Its aim To protect the Realm by any means necessaryA Night Action alert calls James Bond away from dinner with a beautiful woman Headuarters has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack sche This is the newest reincarnation of James Bond and I was interested in seeing how Deaver would reinvent 007 as a 21st Century British operative I’ll admit I’m not an avid James Bond fan though I liked Sean Connery in Dr No and I’ve read Ian Fleming’s Casino Royale I was impressed with Deaver’s interpretation He stayed true to the spirit of Bond but added his own impeccable plotting which frankly made a lot sense than many of the Bond movies All in all Deaver successfully transplanted Bond into 2011 The narrative twists are many and suitably surprising The villains are well drawn eually creepy compelling and competent Bond comes across as very human admirable and somewhat tragic While there is no shortage of romance with the usual ‘Bond girls’ with ridiculous names – Felicity Willing Philly Maidenstone – there is nothing ‘throw away’ or glibly macho about Bond’s emotional life This is a three dimensional James Bond whom I would love to follow in further adventures
