Publisher's Summary

Ernst Stavro Blofeld, leader of the terrorist organization SPECTRE, has hijacked an American plane loaded with atomic weapons. Unless his demands are met, he will destroy one of the world's major cities. With only one week to locate the missing bombs, James Bond goes to the Bahamas, where he encounters Blofeld's right-hand man, Emilio Largo, and his mistress, Domino. With time running out, Bond learns that sharks are not the only killers in the Caribbean Sea.

This audiobook includes an exclusive bonus interview with Jason Isaacs.

    "Superb"

    Isaac's assessment is spot on: this Bond's a man, not a cartoon, and all the more fascinating for it. The performances are sublime...who knew he could make such an affecting Domino?

    "Isaacs' Superb Performance Makes Book Excellent"

    This is a fun read, really showcasing how human James Bond is in the books. It is Isaacs's spectacular reading, however, that really makes this feel like cinema. The accents, the timing, the inflection... Superb!

    "Better than the movie!"
    What did you love best about Thunderball?

    I love the way Bond is written. I wish he would actually be portrayed like this in the films.


    Any additional comments?

    Jason Isaacs was the reason why I bought this in the first place. He was amazing. This is not the kind of book I'd normally pick up and read but, thanks to Mr. Isaacs I'll be checking out more books like this.
