|About the Book|
I read this because I have such contempt for the two James Bond books I sampled that I wondered if one of the rip-offs could possibly be as bad. It fact, this is written with more skill and style, better plotting, a character that is about as dull, and supporting characters that are about as cartoonish. It is such an improvement that this entertaining little number was destined for 3 stars until about 20 pages before the end when the action turns so unrealistic and, frankly, disgusting, that I lost all respect. Nick Carter is the implied author. The actual person to blame is Manning Lee Stokes and his editor.
