Review of With A Mind To Kill by Anthony Horowitz (a James Bond novel)

FSWL contributor Brian Smith reviews the new James Bond novel With A Mind To Kill written by Anthony Horowitz. "I read the book in one sitting. It may sound like reviewer hyperbole, but I literally couldn’t put this book down until I’d devoured the astonishing last chapter. Horowitz presents Bond at his most introspective and delves inside his mind as clinically as Colonel Boris. In hindsight, Bond’s physical and soul erosion unwittingly began in Casino Royale, but it was only in Fleming’s last two novels that we were given an insight into how much. Here, Bond has finally had enough of the ‘dirty business’ of spying, as Fleming once called it. The beatings and injuries inflicted upon him during his previous missions have finally taken their toll, yet Horowitz still maintains the sense of style, suspense and readability that is the hallmark of the Bond stories."
