Seafire (1994) by John Gardner - 2012 paperback edition

By: FSWL team
New paperback edition Seafire
Publication of a new paperback edition of Seafire, John Gardner's 14th James Bond novel. The book is published by Orion Books in the UK.

James Bond is back in action, with the stunning Flicka von Grusse at his side and his licence to kill renewed once more. His target is Sir Maxwell Tar: a businessman whose legitimate empire spans the globe, whose wealth is uncountable, who also deals in illegal weapons on a breathtaking scale.

But even Bond is unprepared for the speed of events, as a sting operation in a Cambridge hotel leads rapidly to an assassination in Spain, a fugitive in Israel and neo-Nazi plotters in Germany.

Bond finally catches up with Tarn in Puerto Rico where his prey becomes his captor. Can he escape in time to stop Tarn?

About the author:
After Kingsley Amis John Gardner was the next writer to be asked by Glidrose (now IFPL) to write further adventures of James Bond. He wrote, like Ian Fleming, fourteen Bond books, plus novelisations of the films Licence to Kill (1989) and GoldenEye (1995), from 1981 to 1996.

Before becoming an author of fiction in the early 1960s John Gardner was variously a stage magician, a Royal Marine officer, a journalist and, for a short time, a priest in the Church of England. In all, Gardner had fifty-five novels to his credit - many of them best-sellers - before he died in August 2007.
