Overview

Three classic 007 novels by the acclaimed Raymond Benson, featuring literature’s most celebrated secret agent.In this new collection of James Bond novels, published in trade paperback for the first time, we are once again treated to the thrilling adventures of Fleming’s classic hero, first in The Facts of Death, which pits Britain’s famed secret agent against a fanatic cult who has murdered M’s lover; then in Zero Minus Ten, where Bond finds himself in Hong Kong to investigate a series of deadly shipping explosions; and finally in The Man with the Red Tattoo, where Bond must stop a Japanese crime ring from attempting a mass assassination with a deadly strain of the West Nile virus.As an added bonus for the fanatical Bond fan base, the collection includes two short stories never before published in book form, "Live at Five" and "Midsummer Night’s Doom."Through it all, Raymond Benson masterfully evokes the classic Bond flair, romance, and elan that made Ian Fleming’s novels worldwide bestsellers.

    Right. Now pay attention, 007.  I doubt anybody can write a Bond

    Right. Now pay attention, 007. 
    I doubt anybody can write a Bond book as good as Fleming did, and to be fair, I don’t get the impression that anyone is trying to. These books, like the movies, reflect a different Bond for whichever decade in which they appear. These were written during the Brosnan era and reflect those sensibilities. 
    All three of these stories, and the two bonus shorts, are solid and fun. Why they don’t make movies based on the modern books I don’t really understand. I appreciate the die hard adherence to Fleming ideas, but there is some good stuff here that we’ll never see on the screen. But as least it’s somewhere. The films of James Bond have eclipsed the literary origins to some extent, but I’m pleased to see them continue. 
    Don’t miss this author’s previous Omnibus: The Union Trilogy.
