John Gardner writes spy novels that happen to feature James Bond. This one has Bond going against an arms dealer who also runs a religious cult that produces suicide bombers.
Takes about two hours to get moving but then the horror and suspense starts and you get going to the finish. No luxury or exotic locations, just a macabre and brutal psycological thriller.
One of the better Gardner Bond books and very well performed by Simon Vance.
