Ian Fleming ì For your eyes only book

There’s only one thing you can be sure of the result will be thrilling And whether he’s dealing with the assassination of a Cuban thug in America the destruction of an international heroin ring or sudden death in the Seychelles Bond gets the job done In his own suave and unmistakable style Is it possible to write effective short stories about spies When I started reading Ian Fleming's For Your Eyes Only I thought Ho ho I can't see where this'll work In fact none of the five stories are strictly speaking spy stories No SMERSH no SPECTRE and only a couple mentions of the big bad Soviets In From a View to a Kill James Bond patiently finds who murdered a SHAPE courier by becoming one himself and luring the assassinThe title story is a plain and simple revenge murder at M's behest of a gangster who killed two dear old friends of his in JamaicaMy favorite story is uantum of Solace in which 007 finds out from the governor of the Bahamas why it is not such a great idea to marry an airline stewardessRisico finds Bond trying to help the Americans nail a European drug dealer except that the enemy turns out to be an ally; and the ally an enemyFinally The Hildebrand Rarity contains an unsolved but utterly deserving murder of a cruel American billionaire These five stories are as good as anything Fleming has written
