A fun James Bond adventure updated to current times & technology. The plot was well done and is a typical James Bond "saving the world" story! While reading the first 25% of the book, I felt that I was reading GQ magazine that is, I thought the author went a bit over on what brand beverage Bond was drinking or clothes Bond was wearing etc. Being a long time Bond fan, it is interesting to note that Ian Fleming was able to write a great Bond novel in 125 - 150 pages whereas Jeffrey Deaver took 500 plus pages. Definitely as good or better than the Gardner and Benson series. I enjoyed the book!
