Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"Fleming is splendid; he stops at nothing." (New Statesman)
"At the first words of this production, listeners can immediately imagine every James Bond movie they ever saw. [Simon Vance] sounds like all the characters rolled into one." (AudioFile)

Refreshingly different!

Moonraker took my
least favorite Bond movie and showed me what a mistake it was by the producers to not follow this amazing story. The book is a wonderfully refreshing change of pace for 007 fans! Your allowed to see the world of James Bonds business life from inside MI6 in a way that makes you realize that secret agents are not always going on exotic adventures, one right after the other! However I found the office part to be interesting and not boring at all. Don't expect a trip to outer space in this book!

The action-oriented espionage classics by Ian Fleming are always an enjoyable read, or in this case, listen. The audio is great, and the narrator's voice and accent create an enthralling, believable production of the literature.
