Publisher's Summary

A game of canasta turns out crooked, and a golden girl ends up dead. It seems that Auric Goldfinger is a bad loser when it comes to cards. He's also the world's most ruthless and successful gold smuggler. As James Bond follows his trail, he discovers that Goldfinger's real game is the heist of 15 billion dollars of US government bullion. The final hand is played at Fort Knox, in a spectacular display of deception and intrigue.
This audiobook includes an exclusive bonus interview with Hugh Bonneville.

Book 7, Film 3

"Fear, Mr Bond, takes gold out of circulation and hoards it against the evil day."
- Ian Fleming, Goldfinger

A very enjoyable read except for a couple nagging complaints. I hate Fleming/Bond's attitude towards Asians (Koreans in this book, but it was Chinese in Dr. No) and women (lesbians in this book). It doesn't age well. While I wasn't alive in the 50s, and I suspect it was more normal 60 years ago, it still reads a bit too heavy with white, masculine overcompensation.

I would have given this over-the-top spy thriller four stars, except for the sexist/racist complaints above. It produced one of the best Bond movies of all time and also introduced one of the worst-named, but most-interesting characters (Pussy Galore) in the James Bond universe. I loved the way the novel was structured into the three run-ins with Goldfinger (I. Happenstance; II. Coincidence; III. Enemy Action), with each run-in becoming more and more over-the-top. I loved the car chase, the golf game, etc. I think the best summary of this book came from Roy Perrott, writing for the Manchester Guardian, who said the novel was "hard to put down; but some of us wish we had the good taste just to try."
