Publisher's Summary

Elliot Carver - the ultra-rich media mogul - has found a way to "create" news and broadcast it all over the world as it happens. Now he has devised the ultimate plan: to start a war between Great Britain and China. The conflict will reach every television in the world and garner the highest ratings in history. A man who can start a war anytime and anywhere he pleases - and then profit from it - will be the most powerful man in the world. But Carver didn't count on James Bond.

Just a copy of the movie

From the perspective of a person who has seen the movie, the book gives the impression of being a cheap and short let-down made based on the movie script. The thing is that the way the movie is made just doesn't work as a book that well, and the book mostly just tries to describe what is being seen on the screen. That, however, is a fault of Benson, and Vance's reading is really brilliant, as a have grown to expect from the other Bond books he has read. Still, please watch the movie instead of listening this book.

Good film plot but poorly realized as a book

Two things sadly lacking - an editor for the author, a producer for the performer.
