LES ENNEMIS DE JAMES BOND BY KEVIN COLLETTE

Publication of Les Ennemis de James Bond, the second book on Bond written by Kevin Bertrand Collette (his first, James Bond, le Dossier secret, was published in October 2012). The new book is published in March 2014 by Camion Noir and contains nearly 40 exclusive, non Eon copyrighted photos from the author's personal collection (never before published anywhere).

Hitchcock said it best: "The better the Villain, the better the story."

Ian Fleming followed that wise advice to the tee – and in turn the Eon filmmakers kept the very same recipe when adapting the original British writer's novels.

Fleming died almost 50 years ago (well, it will be 50 years in next August), but the Bond films keeps coming every three or four year.

Even if you hadn't already watched a Bond movie (which would make you a citizen of eastern Siberia at least) there are images which summoned the James Bond 'feel': a white cat stroked by a bald guy in Mao clothes, an hollow volcano conjuring pictures of Ninjas attacking the Villain's HQ, even a mere bug in your laptop would evoke some nasty business devised by Raoul Silva himself …

This book has been written with a tongue in cheek approach, and it is the writer's hope that you may smile from time to time, wondering why the heck no Bond Villain has still decided to purely shoot 007 in the head once and for all, in lieu of exposing his / her World domination Master plan to the invincible British secret agent …

In short, a ... guide for Bond nemesis not to repeat the mistakes of your illustrious predecessors and get rid once and for all of James Bond, gentleman secret agent with a licence to kill!

About the author:
A movie critic for more than thirty years, Kevin Collette has been truly mesmerized by the first James Bond movie he saw as a kid in a theater in 1971. The film was Diamonds Are Forever, and the kid never recovered since…
