About this title

Synopsis:

James Bond races to a final showdown with his deadliest foe.

"Benson captures the spirit and pluck of Fleming's 007."
-San Francisco Examiner

In Raymond Benson's chilling new James Bond novel, 007 comes face-to-face with the most cunning criminal mastermind he has ever fought-the blind genius behind the brutal organization called The Union.

At a movie studio in Nice, a police raid goes horribly wrong-killing innocent men, women, and even children. In an English prison, a dead man discloses an intriguing secret about The Union. The trail leads James Bond to Paris, where he meets the tantalizing French movie star Tylyn Mignonne and embarks on a voyage of sensual discovery and mortal danger.

Bond's journey takes him to a thrilling underwater brush with death, a chase through the Corsican wilderness, a thrilling climax at the Cannes Film Festival-and a final confrontation with a twisted criminal genius.

Review:

Raymond Benson continues his string of bracing, true-to-tradition James Bond adventures with Never Dream of Dying. As in his last two outings (High Time to Kill and Doubleshot), Bond is up against the Union, a supersecret international cartel of arms dealers and assassins headed by a satisfyingly diabolical mastermind. All the ingredients are there: solo forays into enemy territory, exotic European locales, brushes with death, high-tech gadgetry, a gorgeous femme fatale, and a hair-raising conclusion featuring plenty of explosions and a deadly race against the clock. Benson, a scholar of the original Ian Fleming series who has written four other original Bond thrillers as well as the novelizations of several Bond movies, gets the tone just right. Bond fans won't be disappointed. --Nicholas H. Allison
