William Boyd – Solo A James Bond Novel

And before that this year was this James Bonder.  Having run through the whole Ian Flemming Bond catalogue a year or so ago (thank you kindle) I saw this in the library and thought I’d give it a spin.  It was a fine easy read, though Bond goes a bit ott when breaking a neck.  My advice to Bond, do not walk away you muppet.  Pretty sure even in those days you could have organised some protection for your close family even if it had to be on the quiet owing to your secret status.

Fine for the beach (or plane).
