My ten favorite books of the year.
Maybe this book is only for true Fleming fans (it's certainly not going to thrill fans of the Roger Moore films, for example), but reading this was both comforting and thrilling. Boyd nailed it. For one thing, he got the drinking right. Bond likes an occasional martini, but he is really a whiskey-and-soda man.
Best contemporary page-turner I've read in a couple of years. A solid, beautifully-written mystery about a woman with amnesia and the men who love her.
