Upon arriving, he learns that a local boy, Alfie Kelly, has gone missing. James teams up with the boy’s cousin, Red, to investigate the disappearance.

    " This book is slow to start but a MUST read for James Bond fans. It really explains his past history and why he does some of the things he does as an adult. Well written from the history perspective. Of course there are no gadgets.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Rob Jeremiah | 5/30/2011

    " It starts out slow, barely leaving the reader with a reason to continue. It is not easy to read because it suffers from wordiness. The suspense does not build up and is hardly considered high-octane. "
