Agent 007 is back—and he must race to stop the destruction of England.

When James Bond is asked to settle a dispute over “ungentlemanly behavior” at an exclusive gambling club, the affair is embarrassing in the extreme, for the accused is the unimpeachable Sir Hugo Drax: business tycoon, popular hero, patriot extraordinaire, and head of the multimillion-dollar Moonraker missile program on which Britain’s future defense depends.

Soon, however, the “affair of honor” takes on a somewhat more serious tone as Bond finds out the bizarre and terrifying truth about Drax and Moonraker, a truth that could not only prove fatal for Agent 007 and his beautiful companion but could mean the deaths of millions.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Bond has never been more debonair than he is here. Vance creates compelling and realistic characters aside from the protagonist, leading to a thrilling listen that will captivate fans of the genre and newcomers alike as the film never could.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)

  • “By some latent intuition, Fleming was able to peer beyond the Cold War limitations of mere spy fiction and to anticipate the emerging milieu of the Colombian cartels, Osama bin Laden, and indeed the Russian mafia.”

    Christopher Hitchens, New York Times bestselling author

  • “At the first words of this production, listeners can immediately imagine every James Bond movie they ever saw. [Vance] sounds like all the characters rolled into one.”


  • “Fleming is splendid; he stops at nothing.”

    New Statesman

  • A Listen Up Award Winner in 2008

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Doubledf19.99 | 2/18/2014

    " good read, and the Bond series, enjoyable and a page turner, and a fast read at that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Taruia | 1/30/2014

    " The third iteration of Fleming's James Bond books is based entirely in the UK with industrialist Sir Hugo Drax helpfully offering to build a rocket for HM Government. Of course not all of the story is as plausible as that, but nonetheless it is my favourite of the first three books in the series, thus far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Paul | 1/23/2014

    " Some enjoyable set pieces and observations although it can be a little bit slow at time. Not the best Bond but still worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Andreas Strom | 1/22/2014

    " Luckily, this had next to nothing in common with the embarrassment that is the movie. Bond doesn't even leave Britain, let alone go to space :) Not the best Bond novel, a bit boring here and there, but still a worthy novel. "
