    M calls this case a "soft option". He sends Bond to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of the head of the Kingston station. Jamaica is luxurious, and the seductive Honey Rider is beautiful and willing, but they are both part of the empire of Dr. No.

    Doug says: "A classic James Bond thriller"
    "The real 007 you won't see on the screen - amazing"

    Would you listen to Dr. No again? Why?

    Yes - Amazing mix of atmospheric narrative with real, well developed characters. Bond is a man with feelings and weaknesses, the girl has a broken nose - the electricity is palpable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Honeyrider - tough and feminine.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Simon Vance is the MAN - 007 of his class.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Surprising and redeeming.
