    M laid down his pipe and stared at it tetchily. 'We have no choice. We're just going to bring forward this other chap you've been preparing. But you didn't tell me his name.'  

    'It's Bond, sir,' the Chief of Staff replied. 'James Bond.'  

    The sea keeps its secrets. But not this time. 

    One body. Three bullets. 007 floats in the waters of Marseille, killed by an unknown hand. 

    It's time for a new agent to step up. Time for a new weapon in the war against organised crime. 

    It's time for James Bond to earn his licence to kill. 

    This is the story of the birth of a legend in the brutal underworld of the French Riviera.

    Highly enjoyable!

    A great light read.
    Classic James Bond story with beautiful women, lovely scenery, evil villains, a few plot twists and a gripping finale. Best of all the wry British humour. The narrator was outstanding , moving between accents and characters in a convincing manner.
    It was like hearing the movie in my head, the vivid descriptions creating the images accurately in my mind.

    The ultimate treat for James Bond fans

    I remember reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond book during some summer holidays abroad. I found one in the hotel lobby and was surprised how different it was from the movies. I had expected something gripping but shallow, a playboy super-agent without a heart. But the original James Bond is much more complex. He is deeply in love with the women in his life and if there is more than one it is only because they keep getting killed. I have never been interested in golfing or poker or roulette but the way in which Fleming wrote about that left me glued to the page.
    So it was quite a challenge to match that author, to capture the style, the characterization, a plot, which needs to be typical and original at the same time. Antony Horowitz was commissioned by the Fleming Estate to write new James Bond books using material left by Ian Fleming. He was definitely a perfect choice. He had already published Trigger Mortis and Forever and a Day is the second addition to the Bond series.
    But Forever and a Day is not only another James Bond adventure. Chronologically it is the first one as it shows him at the very point of his career, when he receives his license to kill and becomes 007. I finally found out what M stands for. And why he drinks his Martini shaken not stirred. And even bits about his childhood. I am not surprised that Antony Horowitz did such an excellent job with James Bond. I think he and Fleming have things in common. They both love a challenge, especially in uncharted waters.
    No matter if you are a fan of James Bond or simply love thrilling, well-written crime fiction, I am sure you will enjoy this story, which on top of everything else is very well interpreted by Matthew Goode as reader of the audiobook.

    My first James Bond Novel

    I was really enjoying a backstory to the man James Bond as well as the case he works. The story is very fluently, colorfully written so that I had the feeling of being at the places and with the people. Mr. Horowitz laid down a great plot and the speaker Mr. Goode has performed brilliantly. I had no trouble distinguishing the different characters as he gives all of them a special flair with his voice - beautifully done.
    If I could, I would insert an applauding Emoji!

    very Flemmingish

    I liked it a lot. Not too action heavy but still not boring. An amateur Bond with hints here and there where he got his habits from... not my favorite narrator tho.
