I checked this book out because I thought it had been written by Tony Horwitz not Tony Horowitz! I read many James Bond books long ago and have since realized there are a lot better adventure thrillers out there. Poor James isn't that intriguing anymore. The novels have always been corny but have created such fun, silly, and "out there" movies! I confess that I didn't read more than 10 pages, maybe it gets better?
