Amazon.de

Bond novels should have a greater freedom to explore 007's deeper psyche , free as they are from the rapacious demands of Hollywood. In Doubleshot, Raymond Benson delivers a vivid, tense view of a vengeance-obsessed Bond, injury-stricken and forced to confront his existence as a "blunt instrument of death". This is at the cost of the more traditional Bond set pieces; there are no Q-brand gizmo's or dizzying action sequences. Set mere weeks after High Time To Kill, Bond is forcibly off-duty, recuperating after facing The Union, yet hell-bent on avenging the death of his long time lover, exposed as a Union agent. Before you can say "personal vendetta", Bond straps on the Walther PPK and sets off to destroy his enemies. However, they are equally anxious to meet him, thanks to his involvement in an audacious plot to retake Gibraltar from Britain. Bond isn't the death-proof super-spy of old, instead he is afflicted with all-too-human injuries and plagued with doubts--both welcome and ignored. Benson ensures that such "weaknesses" are constantly pitted against Bond's superhuman tenacity and formidable murderous abilities: "He felt no remorse, but he felt no satisfaction either. He felt absolutely nothing ... and performed the task coldly and objectively." Even so, the anticipated action and ingenious gadgetry are conspicuous by their absence. Peeking into an intriguing and dark mindset, Benson accomplishes his mission with verve and efficiency. --Danny Graydon

3.0 von 5 Sternen Benson versenkt eine gute Grundidee im Mittelmaß 2. August 2012
Von S. Simon TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Wie bei seinen vorherigen Bond-Romanen gelingt es Benson einen Ansatz für eine Bond-Story zu finden, der Klasse ist und neuen Wind in die bekannten Bestandteile der Bond-Welt bringt. So ist Doubleshot" im ersten Viertel wirklich super, weil man sich lange fragt, ob Bond, der bei einem Einsatz schwere Verletzungen davon getragen hat, wirklich halluziniert, ob sich sowas also wirklich mal auf seinen generellen Zusatnd auswirkt, oder ob sich das jemand ausgedacht hat, was hier passiert.
Als der Roman jedoch seinen Handlungsschauplatz von England nach Afrika verlegt, geht der Spannungsbogen deutlich nach unten. Eine durchaus witzige Szene ist Bonds Zugfahrt und deren Auflösung, aber insgesamnt hängt der Mittelteil durch.
Richtung Finale gewinnt die Story dann wieder an Konsistenz und Spannung. Allerdings begeht Benson einen groben Schnitzer. Sicher würde Bond sich nicht kurz vor Schluss mit der Sekretärin des Schurken einlassen, wenn er damit rechnen muss, dass diese eine gewisse Person der Handlung näher kennt (wer das ist, wäre unfair zu verraten) und so aufzufliegen. Einfach ein dummer, vermeidbarer Fehler.
Die Story, dass sich jemand an Bond rächen möchte, gab es schonmal in John Gardners Niemand lebt für immer". Zwar nicht mit einer so genialen Grundidee wie sie Benson aufbietet, aber dafür besser ausgefährt.
Fazit: Erneut bedauert man es, dass Benson eine anfangs tolle Grundidee im Verlaufe der Handlung nicht besser zu nutzen weiß und das am Ende nur Mittelmaß dabei heraus kommt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bond is back - better than ever! 21. März 2004
Format:Taschenbuch
Raymond Benson's Bond ist well remembered from Benson's other Bond novels "Zeros Minus Ten" and "High Time To Kill". With "Doubleshot" Benson continues the succesful era of the world's greatest secret agent. And this time, 007 has to fight with and against himself.
The Union, the dark organization which is to blame for the death of Bond's assistant from the Himalayas, has planned a deadly strike against its old enemy. Slowly they make Bond think that he's going mad and so they lead him to a well prepared and dangerous trap. Besides they help an Spanish guy called Domingo Espada to take over Gibraltar which still belongs to Great Britain. Espada and his organization want Her Majesty's Goverment to give Gibraltar back to Spain and Espada himself wants to be the first Spanish Governeur of the new part of Spain. The mad man doesn't know that he's only a little figure in the great plan of the Union. And the final end will surprise everyone who thinks that now the end of James Bond has come...
With all the elements which are needed for a great 007-adventure Benson has well done with his new Bond novel. Mixted with action, passion and excitement this is one of the best Bond-adventures of all.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Pass on this book, Mr. Bond 25. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was definately NOT one of Benson's better efforts. The plot lacked the punch that was evident in his previous books while the author tried to impress the reader with his knowledge of bullfighting and Spanish buzzwords. The twins were a Joke, and the final fight scene left much to be desired. The whole book seemed like a return to the John Gardner days....
High Time was a much more enjoyable book !

3.0 von 5 Sternen No deals ,Mr. Benson 17. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Although I have enojoyed Mr Benson's other Bond stories, especially High Time.., I thought this one lacked punch. I could not relate this story to a James Bond type of adventure. Do not get me wrong I enjoyed some of the plot, well maybe the end of the story. I look foward to the next novel, I hope.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I don't get the criticism... 14. Juli 2000
Von eknirb
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have read a lot of knocks on this title and I don't get it. It did take a bit to get me going at the start, but after that, I blitzed thru this book very fast. Obviously we have another Union-based title coming, 'cause as we left Le Gerant, he was a bit irritated. Get that next one out soon!

1.0 von 5 Sternen A Double Shot of Disappointment 14. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
What was Benson thinking? Had this been the first Bond book ever written, it most assuredly also would have been the last. The protagonist is nothing short of stupid -- embarassingly so. One of Bond's saving graces has always been his ability to overcome adversity and ultimately triumph. Perhaps as a result of inadequate plot and character development, the challenges Bond faces appear by no means to be insurmountable, even for a moderately capable novice spy. Yet superspy Bond wanders through this story almost as a spectator, allowing things to happen to him and never taking the initiative. He is a victim throughout. One would think the Union set their plot in motion by reducing Bond's IQ to about 23. Were this the Bond of Fleming's imagination, he would have seen through the Union's ruse in an instant, and would have dealt with them summarily. His recent ordeal (in the prior novel) is no excuse for what ultimately is a vapid, slow moving, boring chronicle of one mistake after another by a hero whom the author has made into a fool.
Benson "phoned this one in". Any one chapter of Fleming's or Gardner's books (or Benson's previous efforts) has more plot and character develpoment. Poor Mr. Fleming is spinning in his grave like a chicken on a rotisserie.

2.0 von 5 Sternen So So "00" 13. Juli 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Raymond Benson's latest 007 adventure is another one of his predictable potboilers, though it does have its moments. He seems to have stolen plot ideas from Fleming's classic "From Russia With Love" and combined them with one of his average, and somewhat cliched, concepts. Still this novel is one step up from the very disappointing "High Time To Kill", which started out well but never lived up to its potential. Ironically Benson seems best when he is dealing with other peoples ideas, as evidenced by the two excellent movie novelisations he has penned. So this is hardly a classic but worth a read by fans of "Bondage" !

4.0 von 5 Sternen Give us your best "Shot," Mr. Benson
Anyone who suffered through the years of less than stellar efforts by John Gardner (he was a great writer, but he clearly didn't have his heart invested in Bond) can read easy now. Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Benson's Bond is Back with Intensity
"Doubleshot" is by far Raymond Benson's best 007 novel to date. He has shown us a different side of Bond that we haven't seen in years. Some of it we've never seen. Lesen Sie weiter...

3.0 von 5 Sternen not Benson's best, but worth reading
This book is clearly a major slip for Raymond Benson, whose earlier Bond books skillfully combined the flavor of the Fleming books with enough creativity to keep the presentation... Lesen Sie weiter...

Ok, Mr Reymond Benson first sequel was not as good as High Time To Kill. (Well nothing really can beat HTTK to me.) But Doubleshot was a good run. Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen This Bond Book was a blast
I really like this book. Bond was awsome. He hunted down a dangerous terrorist group called The Union. I hope the next book is good as well.
