Rating: 2.5* of five
Pretty much the standard early 70s thriller, it's a Bond novel with an American suave and debonair enough to seduce every woman, rich enough to be unimpressed by threats, and rough enough to do some (quite violent) damage to criminals across the globe.
He's answerable to only one man, the President of the United States of America, and only because he really, really wants to defend his country—and the free world—against something called "Keyhole". It means nothing less than...Utter Annihilation!!!
Pretty much piffle, then, but nicely paced, and there's something very chauvinistically cool about Bond being a Stars and Stripeser. It was fun to read, it passed an afternoon, and it seemed a good choice to go into Operation Paperback, to be read by soldiers stationed in Afghanistan.
