Publisher's Summary

When 007 goes to Harlem, it's not just for the jazz. This is the kingdom of Mr. Big, master of crime, voodoo baron, and partner in SMERSH's grim company of death. Those Mr. Big cannot possess he crushes - like his beautiful prisoner, Solitaire, and her would-be saviors James Bond and Agency man Felix Leiter. All three are marked out as victims in a trail of terror, treachery, and torture that leads from New York's underworld to the shark-infested island in the sun that Mr. Big calls his own.

This audiobook includes an exclusive bonus interview with Rory Kinnear.

    "Preposterous second half"

    Dated in an illuminating way. Interesting example of British mid-century racial views. Once they get to Jamaica things get completely ridiculous. Ian Fleming 's fish ignorance is displayed at excruciating, pointless length.

    "Far From Racist"

    I have to say I disagree with the reviews they call this book racist. The book was written in 1954. The language it uses it typical of that time. rather than being racist, this book is actually very Pro African American, as its antagonist is a brilliant, powerful man whose organization proves more capable than the combined resources of the FBI, CIA and MI6. All this in a book that was written while Jim Crow laws were still in effect. Rather than being reviled as racist, this book should be recognized as an early piece of civil rights literature.

    "Different from the film but interesting"

    Written in 1954, this has all the colonial racism, sexism, and British exceptionalism one should expect from a Bond novel but as a pulp adventure story it is quite enjoyable.

    "well worth reading"

    It would have to be stupendous for me to give this 5 stars, and perhaps 4 is a stretch, but there were portions that were quite good (the flight to Jamaica being perhaps the best, and Solitare of course is literally to die for). Overall I am quite delighted to have invested the time.

    "Much better than that awful Roger Moore movie."

    Voodoo. Americans. Sharks. Gold. Harlem. Mr. Big. Jamaica.

    Loved every minute of it. One more bond book under my belt.

    "Better than the movie!"

    It was great to listen to the book & picture certain scenes from the movie in my head. But I do think I enjoyed the book more. I thought the narrator was great!

    "A great book all around!"

    Well written: engaging, brief but not too short, quick paced, smartly written.
    Well read: good voice, good timing, easy to listen to.

    "Enjoyable"

    Great and intriguing story that goes in a very different and exciting direction compared to Casino Royale. I personally enjoyed learning about Bonds view of America from inside his perspective. It was enjoyable and exciting to listen to how Bond and Felix were going to escape the Harlem nightclub! I thought Rory Kinnear did a wonderful and amazing job with the narration and would not hesitate to buy another 007 book with his narrative!
