Publisher's Summary

Ernst Stavro Blofeld, leader of the terrorist organisation SPECTRE, has hijacked an American plane loaded with atomic weapons. Unless his demands are met he will destroy one of the world’s major cities. With only one week to locate the missing bombs, Bond goes to the Bahamas where he encounters Blofeld’s right-hand man, Emilio Largo and his mistress Domino. With time running out, Bond learns that sharks are not the only killers in the Caribbean Sea.
Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Jason Isaacs.

Hello to Jason Isaacs!


I could listen to this narrator for a long time, Great story and perfect narration. Probably my favourite narration so far, I'm listening to these Audio Go releases in order of the original releases.

Dark Bond

Having never read the books and only watched the movies, I was surprised at how dark and cynical this novel was. It is well narrated and worth listening to, but it is also a novel of its time too.
