    Fresh from Afghanistan, James Bond has been recruited to a new agency. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of Five, Six and the MoD, its very existence deniable. Its aim: to protect the Realm, by any means necessary. The Night Action alert calls Bond from dinner with a beautiful woman. GCHQ has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack scheduled for later in the week: casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.

    Overall

    I was a little skeptical of this book as I can't recall ever reading a prior Bond book. However, I have been a Jeffery Deaver fan for quite some time. I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read-listen. I liked the Bond reboot aspects of the book and felt the Deaver did a very admirable job with the character and his background. The plot was a bit formulaic; but, that is what I was expecting and I was not disappointed. When you want a Bond-type story; that's what you want and like. Finally, I very much enjoyed the narrator. He really brought the characters to life for me. In the last year, I've become an audio book fan and this was as enjoyable a listen as I've had. The narrator makes a big difference. Bravo Mr. Stephens. I'm looking forward to Deaver's next installment of the new 007!

    London, 1940: The Luftwaffe blitzes London every night for 57 nights. Houses, shops, and entire streets are wiped from the map. The underworld is in flux: The Italian criminals who dominated the West End have been interned, and now their rivals are fighting to replace them. Meanwhile, hidden in the shadows, the Black-Out Ripper sharpens his knife and sets to his grisly work.

    I enjoyed this book. I particularly liked the setting of the story: London during the blitz. Great story line and characters. I wish some story lines had been completed. I hope the next in the series will pick up these story lines. Great work Mr. Dawson.
