Publisher's Summary

In a highly secret office somewhere in London, a murder is to be attempted. M is to be the victim -- and the assassin is to be James Bond! Bond, believed dead for a year following the events of You Only Live Twice, returns to England. Brainwashed by the KGB, he believes his mission is to assassinate M. After his mind is "scrubbed", he is given a chance to redeem himself. The mission: to go to the Caribbean and track down Francisco Scaramanga, the one they call the Man with the Golden Gun. He has built a deadly laser for the express purpose of killing. With his single-action, gold-plated Colt.45 and his deadeye accuracy, Scaramanga is deemed too deadly to live.

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.

An odd, hokey Bond tale but Vance kills it.

Probably the worst, most far-fetched Bond, but noirish philosophizing and Vance's excellent narration save it.
