Elliot Carver—the ultra-rich media mogul—has found a way to "create" news and broadcast it all over the world as it happens. Now he has devised the ultimate plan: to start a war between Great Britain and China. The conflict will reach every television in the world and garner the highest ratings in history. A man who can start a war anytime and anywhere he pleases—and then profit from it—will be the most powerful man in the world. But Carver didn't count on James Bond.

Raymond Benson is the author of The Facts of Death, Zero Minus Ten, High Time to Kill and the novelizations of Tomorrow Never Dies and The World Is Not Enough. He is a director of The Ian Fleming Foundation. Benson lives and works in the Chicago area.From Library Journal:
Raymond Benson has expanded Bruce Feirstein's screenplay into an extremely enjoyable adventure novel, read with considerable expertise by John Kenneth. As in the better of the James Bond genre, this is not so much about plot and spying or any relation to a real world situation as it is about the 007 persona and how James is able to extract himself from impossible situations using his quick wits, athleticism, good looks, and general "coolness." The plot involves an unscrupulous media mogul, all the remaining national superpowers and pretenders, various male and female intelligence operatives who apparently are immune to AIDS or have learned to refrain from rational thought, and the expected military and mercenary contingents. Lots of action, sex, and violence here, but tastefully done with the good separated from the evil. A treat for Bond fans from teen to adult. Highly recommended.?Cliff Glaviano, Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH
