    The Union Trilogy: 3 James Bond Novels + one story

    High Time to Kill reunites Bond with a snob from his boyhood days at Eton. Great action in the Himalayas battling Union forces. Doubleshot: not only is Bond battling Union forces, but, his physical & mental recovery from injuries sustained on the mountain in the previous novel are hindering his every move. He's plagued by an almost overwhelming sense of self-doubt along with terrible headaches, blackouts & hallucinations. Memorable scenes awakening in a pool of blood, battling for his life in a bullring, & the thrilling climax make this one Benson's finest. Never Dream of Dying puts Bond up against a villain obsessed with the human eyes. Renee Mathis & Bond are tortured by this villain. Not for the faint of heart. Blast from the Past is a Benson short story about the murder of Bond's son to Kissy Suzuki (You Only Live Twice.) Bond is up against a villain he had thought to be dead who shaves Bond with a razor coated with poison.

    Good collection of stories

    Good coolection James Bond Stories are always good even though its not Ian Fleming the plots are still very interesting. Benson's take on the charactor is completly original especially in Doubleshot. All of the books are in a way different and the same from Fleming's work. Very much recomended for everyone
