A suave secret agent, a gold-obsessed villain, and the most daring heist of all—to steal all the gold in Fort Knox

James Bond has faced his fair share of villains bent on world destruction or domination, but now he is challenged by a maniacal superfiend: the world’s cleverest, cruelest criminal. Auric Goldfinger likes everything in gold—from his money to his women. When Bond is assigned to put a stop to Goldfinger’s gold-smuggling operation, before long a beautiful golden girl turns up dead and a friendly game of two-handed canasta turns into a deadly game of survival with ever-rising stakes—15 billion dollars’ worth of US government bullion. But 007 knows that Auric Goldfinger’s rules remain brutally simple: heads I win, tails you die.

One of Ian Fleming’s most popular Bond adventures, this thrilling tale of action and espionage is the basis for one of the most beloved Bond films starring Sean Connery.

Quotes & Awards

  • Goldfinger marks a turning point in the series…James Bond’s character becomes more introspective as Fleming discloses his hero’s thoughts more often, thus enabling the reader to dig deeper into Bond’s feelings.”

    Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill

  • “Goldfinger is the most preposterous specimen yet displayed in Mr. Fleming’s museum of superfiends…Maniacally readable…excellent pieces of descriptive writing.”

    Observer (London)

  • “[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.”

    " probably better if you have never seen a 007 movie first. bond is never as witty, charming or suave in any of fleming's books as in the connery movies (any bond flick without connery doesn't count). "

    " Limited to what was available in Thailand, and looking for something more "beachy" than what I already had, I gave James Bond a whirl. He's a racist prick, but it's pretty entertaining. And much more well-written than I expected. Favorite line: "Poor little bitch." That's James talking about a dead girl. Oh shit, I almost forgot, there's a mob boss who is forced to shave every four hours because of "that Italian swarthiness." And Koreans are "less than human." "

    " What did I learn from this book? James Bond is a sexist alcoholic? Yes. James Bond is prone to flights of romantic fancy? Yes. James Bond has really weird thoughts about heaven when he's coming around after being drugged? Yes. The book gave me tons of insight into Bond as a character, but that character I ended up not liking much. I'm impressed by his ability to drink Bourbon at noon and still save the lives of 60,000 Kentuckians by taping a secret message to the underside of an airplane toilet. Not to mention, "curing" Pussy Galore of her lesbianism just by being the handsome, macho jerk he his. Bravo, James. "
