    James Bond. And a very old school James Bond at that. Along the way Bond meets a mysterious and beautiful woman named Jeopardy Lane who also has a keen interest in the activities of Sin. This creates a bit of a dilemma in that Bond in his original incarnation is kinda horrifying when you apply modern standards to him. At first it seems as if Horowitz was just going to let Bond be the same kind of guy he was as written by Fleming with the book starting shortly after the events of the Goldfinger novel. However, the character gets to rip into Bond in a speech that Fleming would never have done. So Horowitz manages a tricky tightrope walk of presenting Bond as the type of man he was as originally written while pointing out all his failings and still somehow making him heroic despite those flaws.

    It would be a miracle if another writer could pull off the trick to the same extent.
