Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome, chillingly ruthless, and licensed to kill. This, the first of Ian Fleming’s tales of Secret Agent 007, finds Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called “Le Chiffre.” The battle begins with a fifty-million-franc game of baccarat. If Bond can bring Le Chiffre to ruin at the baccarat table, his Soviet spymasters will be forced to “retire” him. It seems that Lady Luck has sided with 007 when Le Chiffre hits a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules, and Bond’s attraction to a beautiful female agent leads him to disaster—and to an unexpected savior.

For incredible suspense, unexpected thrills, and extraordinary danger, nothing can beat James Bond in his inaugural adventure.

Listener Opinions

    " I must admit, I was how surprised by how graphic the sex and violence was in Casino Royale, considering that it was written in the 1950s. Ian Fleming's books are much darker than the film adapations, and this James Bond is a far cry from that charming, witty playboy portrayal. "

    " The first Bond. The casino section of the recent film is quite similar to this novel. It's my favorite part of the film, so I was delighted to find that it was so close to the book. Poor Vesper. "
