Imagine for a moment Ian Fleming writing the opening scene of his first James Bond novel, Casino Royale. Do you ever wonder where he got the inspiration for the world’s most famous spy? Several candidates have been named, but in Aaron Cooley’s Shaken, Not Stirred, the spy who helps a young Fleming is none other than Dušan Popov. Names are changed, Popov becomes Dusan Petrović and Fleming is Ioan Phlegm. Cooley’s Shaken, Not Stirred is a fictionalized account of Ian Fleming’s wartime work, but it ...more

Some devilishly smart and daring male literature characters have become immortalized into our culture – Sherlock Holmes, Frodo Baggins, Jack Ryan, and Harry Potter, to name a few; but most memorably is the handsome spy, James Bond. In Aaron Cooley’s first novel, he takes Ian Fleming – the man behind James Bond – and gives him a story all his own.

‘If you fictionalized my character, I could live a bit longer.’

Cooley’s Ian Fleming is a wonderful juxtaposition of vintage James Bond, Tom Clancy’s ine

Incredible! Fantastically executed. The development of character "17F" was excellently written. It opens up a whole new world to 007 fans and gives a very interesting prequel-esc story. I highly recommend this book to all of those everyday "spys" out there!

Throughout reading the book I thought it was really well written and extensively researched.

Cooley manages to wriggle in the Heisenberg and Diebner rivalry and a number of additional historic events including Hitler’s pursuit of ‘the nuclear bomb.’ It helps to really place the reader in the historic time period and make it feel all the more real which is what historical fiction is ...more

I really enjoyed this. Its not a genre I would normally pick-up, but it turned out to be a great story; a well written fun read. I particularly enjoyed the clever hints to the future Bond story lines and characters that we all know ... Very cool!

Mr. Cooley - write another one soon!
