Publisher's Summary

In a highly secret office somewhere in London, a murder is to be attempted. M is to be the victim -- and the assassin is to be James Bond!

Bond, believed dead for a year following the events of You Only Live Twice, returns to England. Brainwashed by the KGB, he believes his mission is to assassinate M. After his mind is "scrubbed", he is given a chance to redeem himself. The mission: to go to the Caribbean and track down Francisco Scaramanga, the one they call the Man with the Golden Gun. He has built a deadly laser for the express purpose of killing. With his single-action, gold-plated Colt.45 and his deadeye accuracy, Scaramanga is deemed too deadly to live.

    "Impeccable"

    The action-oriented espionage classics by Ian Fleming are always an enjoyable read, or in this case, listen. The audio is great, and the narrator's voice and accent create an enthralling, believable production of the literature.

    Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. ~Attributed to Groucho Marx

    Any additional comments?

    I worked my way thru all of the original James Bond stories, and I enjoyed them very much. Simon Vance is James Bond on Audio, just remember the stories are dated and if you are offend easy do not listen.
