For 007 fans
am 6. Juni 2000
James 007 Bond still mourns the recent loss of his lover while he personally suffers from a brain lesion. His physician Dr. Feare prescribes medicine and a little side action that are supposed to help Bond recover. His employer has placed Bond on medical leave during his recuperation period.
While 007 convalesces, the Union decides it is time to take the secret agent out before he destroys any other of their plans. They find a look-alike and turn him into a Bond that could fool even James. His mission is to assassinate the British Prime Minister during a heads of state conference. Unable to sit on the sidelines while his reputation, loyalty, and sanity are being shredded, 007 goes after his doppelganger and the Union leadership with an abandon that only he can bring to the scenario.
The latest Bond adventure is only for those readers who must read every written word on the adventures of 007. For the casual fan, this novel is a no-no. The story line is filled with the usual Bondian mix of women and action, and action and women. Although the plot is unique and fast-paced except for the expected sexual asides, the cast, including 007, seems stiff, as they never break out of the central casting role assigned to each one of them. Still Raymond Benson, author of several Bond tales, writes a tale that series fans will fully enjoy while the rest of us will choose a DOUBLE SHOT of Sean Connery.
