COLONEL SUN: A James Bond Adventure


COLONEL SUN: A James Bond Adventure

KINGSLEY AMIS    Book Number: 87189    Product format: Hardback

The novelist, poet and satirist Kingsley Amis who died in 1995 wrote this, the first James Bond novel published after the death of Ian Fleming in 1964. Exotic, an international setting, a beautiful girl, frequent imbibings, and even more frequent killings, here is a violent, sadistic and sexy piece of writing. This classic thriller follows James Bond on a mission to a small Aegean island to track down the maligned Colonel Sun. Lunch, a quiet game of golf, a routine social call on M who is convalescing in his Regency house in Berkshire, the life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern that threatens complacency. That is until the sunny afternoon when M is kidnapped and all of his house staff savagely murdered. The action ricochets across the globe, but quickly enough lands Bond on a volcanic Greek island where the vicious Colonel Sun Liang-tan of the People's Liberation Army of China is collaborating with the ex-Nazi commander Von Richter in planning a world-dominating conspiracy. Together with a beautiful Greek agent and a tough-as-nails former World War Two resistance fighter, stripped of all professional aids, Bond faces the deadly devices in a test that brings him to the verge of his physical abilities. 244pp.
