London: Jonathan Cape, 1986.

First edition of the fifth novel by John Gardner featuring Ian Fleming’s, James Bond. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Gardner on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket.

Future Bond author Raymond Benson said "This is far and away John Gardner's best James Bond novel, and it is precisely because it is such a personal plot for the leading character. It's a plot reminiscent of From Russia, With Love, and it moves along excitingly! The chase idea was splendid indeed, and the reader is chased along with Bond throughout the book." Benson praised the story's "many surprising turns" and believed that if it were a film it would "have much of the same tension that something like Hitchcock's North by Northwest had."
