    Bond. James Bond

    This is a memorable Bond adventure, with new enemies and new never before seen gadgets as well as a new twist. An accent up the world third tallest peak in order to retrieve a micro-dot...just read it your self, but i isn't the best i've read either but it was good.

    'Can't Give A 'High' Review!'

    Raymond Benson's only good Bond novel!! The book has a okay storyline. Raymond Benson trys to be like Ian Fleming and fails!

    Excellent Bond Adventure

    I really think HIGH TIME TO KILL is a terrific Bond adventure, highly original and exactly the kind of thing the films should be doing. It's also the first chapter of Benson's three book 'Union Trilogy' (the next two are DOUBLESHOT and NEVER DREAM OF DYING) so if you've never read a Benson Bond book this is a terrific place to start.

    This is the one that Fleming fans have been waiting for for years. Raymond Benson has elegantly recreated a series that has been long-thought extinct. Bond is back, in his original splendor, just as charming and dashing as ever before. If you thought that this was some cheap remake, you were wrong. If you enjoyed titles like 'Goldfinger' and 'Live And Let Die', you will surely be delighted with this fabulous new Bond.

    Not As Good As It Could Be

    High time to kill has a fairly good story it seems to take you back to the original bond books in which 007 is fighting spectre. Benson seems to be creating a new terrorist organization for bond to fight called 'the Union'. there will definately be more books about this organization and im sure the terrorists will hit closer to home and the battle with them will become more personal. this is apperently just a setup for a much larger story. This book just didn't have the explosive bond ending it should have.
