Publisher Description

James Bond is targeted for elimination by SMERSH, and the malevolent Colonel Rosa Klebb has set a trap in Istanbul. The bait is the Spektor decoding machine, which is to be delivered by the irresistible Tatiana Romanova. The assassin is Red Grant, a psychopath who has defected from the West. Bond and Tatiana become pawns in a game of cross and double-cross that reaches its deadly finale on the Orient Express.

Quotes

  • “One of my favorite books.”

    - John F. Kennedy
  • “From Russia with Love is perhaps the most successful of the Bond series: Fleming has managed to blend excellent characterizations with a highly suspenseful and clever story. The detail is rich and colorful; and the novel contains purely romantic elements that are missing from most of the other books.”

    - Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill
  • “Mr. Fleming’s tautest, most exciting, and most brilliant tale.”

    - Times Literary Supplement
  • “Fleming brings a new precision to the business of intimate violence.”

    - Guardian (London)
  • “The finest book in the Bond franchise.”

    - Independent (London)
  • “Fleming is intensely observant, acutely literate, and can turn a cliché into a silk purse with astute alchemy.”

    - New York Herald Tribune

    " Dr. No is 6th in the series, but was the first Bond movie, with Sean Connery and Ursula Andress. The book is in some ways very different from the movie, no radioactivity, for example. The escape sequence is pretty good, at least in its conception. "
