I was skeptical when I read the tag line "written in the style of Ian Fleming", but I needn’t have been. Faulks did a masterful job of aping the Bond creator’s style. It was interesting watching Bond cope with the changing times and the political upheaval that confronted him in an era closely following the earliest of Fleming’s spy novels. Having grown frustrated with cinema’s portrayal of Bond, it was refreshing to see him return to his flawed, human self, not to mention his own era. This book was gritty in all the right ways, and a little predictable–also in all the right ways.
