And so on to the last book, Book # 3 "Final Fling". I forgot how gripping this stuff is.
From the closing pages of Book # 2:
Btw, if this hasn't come across, yet, I'm enjoying this re-read more than the first read and infinitely more than the original Bond novels. They do require some pre-existing Bond knowledge, tho, so in a way having fun with this series is a reward for having suffered made it through the original material.
Also, I'm not fond of the choice of covers for this series.
