M calls this case a “soft option.” He sends Bond to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of the head of the Kingston station. Jamaica is luxurious, and the seductive Honey Rider is beautiful and willing—but they are both part of the empire of Doctor No. 

Bond discovers that Doctor No is working with the Russians, who have supplied him with several million dollars’ worth of equipment to sabotage nearby American missile tests with strange energy waves. The doctor is a worthy adversary, with a mind as hard and cold as his solid steel hands and an obsession for power. During the course of his mission Bond must battle deadly assassins, sexy femmes fatales, and even a poisonous tarantula.

Quotes & Awards

  • “[Simon Vance’s] polished voice is an enchanting accompaniment to Fleming’s exotic settings and stories. His English accent is as smooth as a dry martini—shaken not stirred—and he slips into other accents as easily as the fictional 007 slips out of a dangerous situation and into the bed of a beautiful woman. Listening to these unabridged novels is more subtle than watching the films, but ultimately more rewarding.”

  • Doctor No is certainly one of the best James Bond novels. In terms of sheer excitement and thrills, it ranks very high. It also has a simple, direct plot, a very appealing heroine, and the best villain since Hugo Drax. It isn’t surprising that it was also chosen to be the first 007 film.”

    Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill

Listener Opinions

    " This is a great action-packed Bond story. In this adventure, Bond is sent to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of 2 agents and suspicious activity on nearby Crab Key. Quarrel, Bond's friend from Live and Let Die, joins him to take on Dr No, an ecentric recluse. I don't want to give away any of the story because it unfolds perfectly. If you are a fan of the Bond stories you will enjoy this one. Please note, there are some racist references that were the norm for 1957 but are offensive by today's standards. "
