With a Mind to Kill: the action-packed Richard and Judy Book Club Pick (James Bond 007)
About this deal
We are—well, ask Bigfoot, as Brooks does in this delightful yarn, following on his bestseller World War Z (2006). While Horowitz 007 was thinking about his past and who played a role in it towards which extend they played a role. Horowitz completes his James Bond trilogy—begun in Trigger Mortis (2015) and Forever and a Day (2018)—by providing what would be the nonpareil British spy’s final adventure if only all those other earlier scribes hadn’t preceded him at the feast.
Along the way, he must wrestle with his inner demons, and deal with the fallout of the brainwashing he'd suffered the last time he was in Soviet hands.
You realise that this Bond is a very good 00 agent and does the job so well because he likes and enjoys the job.
Horowitz’s fealty to Fleming yet capability to expand and add new ideas to a weary Weltanschauung is what has made his contribution to Bond so rewarding.
However, he has come to realize that contemporary policing imposes dilemmas that no training manual could ever anticipate.
