The last book written by Ian Fleming, but by no means the least. In “Octopussy,” a talented but wayward British major pays a high price when his wartime past catches up with him, while in “The Property of a Lady,” a Fabergé egg leads Bond to a KGB spy. In “The Living Daylights,” Bond has a perilous rendezvous in sniper’s alley between East and West Berlin, and “007 in New York” (read by Lucy Fleming) sees him sent to America to warn an ex-MI6 operative about a dangerous liaison. All part of the job for 007. This audiobook includes an exclusive bonus interview with Tom Hiddleston. “The stories delve deeper into the James Bond character and psyche, are full of atmosphere and detail, and are, in short, pure Fleming.”—Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill Published By Blackstone Audio, Inc.
