James Bond is targeted for elimination by SMERSH, and the malevolent Colonel Rosa Klebb has set a trap in Istanbul. The bait is the Spektor decoding machine, to be delivered by the irresistible Tatiana Romanova. The assassin is Red Grant, a psychopath who has defected from the West. Bond and Tatiana become pawns in a game of cross and double-cross that reaches its deadly finale on the Orient Express.

I will return with pleasure to this audio, for the perfume of that times so well described in the book and most of all, for the incredible voice of Toby Stephens.
The book has some of the best ingredients for success : espionage, mystery, love story, friendship, travelling with one of the most romantic conveyance - the Orient Express
His outstanding performance took me in the middle of the story, mixing drama, mystery and feelings with extraordinary easiness. Listening to this audio book with all his old fashioned characters, impersonated by Toby Stephens with so much style and depth, it's a literary experience which turns into a personal one and that is why you will always want to return.
I have had many moments when I hardly stopped the device.
