Publisher's Summary

James Bond is on a mission that will become an obsession. It starts the night Flight 229 is torn apart at Washington airport, killing 435 passengers. But the victim who matters to Bond is the Principessa Sukie Tempesta: once his lover, still his friend.

The search for Sukie's killers will turn out to be the most complex and demanding assignment of Bond's career. Across continents and through ever-changing labyrinths of evil, he follows the traces of clues into the center of a fanatical society more deadly than any terrorist army. Its code name is COLD.

Good story but predictable

Vance is always entertaining. Story a bit predictable. But Bond is always a fun ride.

Horrible 007 book

The author depicts James Bond as dull witted and feckless. He makes Bond a stooge for the CIA and has him randomly quoting Bible verses. Hard to believe that someone would ruin Fleming's 007 like this. The plot is juvenile. One character is introduced and dies for no apparent reason, other than to make Bond relive (twice in this book) the death of Tracey from On Her Majesty's Secret Service. Gardner's Bond is sappy and always thinking about settling down, even with a girl who inexplicably (and suddenly) becomes a psychopath by the end of the book. But worse, Gardner makes Bond stupid - just how could someone fake their death in a burning car? This James Bond just can't imagine how. This book misses all the detailed accounts that I love in the Fleming books -- the details about dress, food, drink, women. Instead, this Bond mostly drinks coffee with the CIA. Seriously, if you listen to this book, count the number of times that 007 grabs a cup of coffee with the CIA. And, he has 007 making a dangerous run on a jet ski. Seriously, what is dangerous about jet skis? Little kids ride them, yet Gardner's 007 is frightened about possibly capsizing one. This book is just awful.

Antifreeze!

John Gardener's last Bond novel is a suitable end to a great run. The story is compelling, fast paced, and with some great twists. Yes there are some plot holes, and the ending feels a bit rushed (as do most of Gardener's endings to be fair) but it's still a classic Bond story. Simon vance is, as ever, superb in his narration.
