    James Bond is targeted for elimination by SMERSH, and the malevolent Colonel Rosa Klebb has set a trap in Istanbul. The bait is the Spektor decoding machine, which is to be delivered by the irresistible Tatiana Romanova. The assassin is Red Grant, a psychopath who has defected from the West. Bond and Tatiana become pawns in a game of cross and double-cross that reaches its deadly finale on the Orient Express.

    Would you listen to From Russia with Love again? Why?

    I will return with pleasure to this audio, for the perfume of that times so well described in the book and most of all, for the incredible voice of Toby Stephens.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book has some of the best ingredients for success : espionage, mystery, love story, friendship, travelling with one of the most romantic conveyance - the Orient Express


    What about Toby Stephens’s performance did you like?

    His outstanding performance took me in the middle of the story, mixing drama, mystery and feelings with extraordinary easiness. Listening to this audio book with all his old fashioned characters, impersonated by Toby Stephens with so much style and depth, it's a literary experience which turns into a personal one and that is why you will always want to return.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have had many moments when I hardly stopped the device.

    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.

    "An actual James Bond story"
    Overall

    This audiobook has brought the espionage genre into real world, being spiced with all the important events which have impacted our existence as people of globalisation.
    The most powerful impact on me it's given by the unique voice of Toby Stephens, such versatile and subtle, with so many inflexions and glow.
