"[Vance], as usual, nails dialect, mood, and pace." (AudioFile)
"[E]xciting sequences, especially the railroad scene, capture all the thrills one has come to expect." (Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill)
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.
