"The face of war is changing.

The other side doesn't play by the rules much anymore.

There's thinking, in some circles,

that we need to play by a different set of rules too '"

James Bond, in his early thirties and already a veteran of the Afghan war, has been recruited to a new organization. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of MI5, MI6 and the Ministry of Defense, its very existence deniable. Its aim: To protect the Realm, by any means necessary.

A Night Action alert calls James Bond away from dinner with a beautiful woman. Headquarters has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack scheduled for later in the week:

Casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.

And Agent 007 has been given carte blanche to do whatever it takes to fulfill his mission . . .

The new thriller by Master of the Mind Game

    Lackluster, sporadic action and suspense. Too much narrative details. Trying to establish more of Bond's life and character but it just gets boring.

    Not bad! As it was my first audio book I had to adjust not seeing Bond on the big screen. Enjoyed listening!
