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!
