Read full description of the books Role of Honor:"Poor thriller and horrible Bond-book. James Bond is totally out of character in this one (even if you accept the new sides to him as introduced in Gardner's first three books) and the set-up makes no sense whatsoever. Not much happens and Gardner relies on keeping the reader in the dark by "tuning out" or skipping in conversations between characters; conversations that apparently reveals a lot of details and secrets to all involved, except for the reader, and this is very frustrating. The plot is basically to take over all the world, and this is apparently not so hard to do. Feels very rushed and is the low point of the series this far I think."
Read information about the authorBefore coming an author of fiction in the early 1960s, John Gardner was variously a stage magician, a Royal Marine officer and a journalist. In all, Gardner has fifty-four novels to his credit, including Maestro, which was the New York Times book of the year. He was also invited by Ian Fleming’s literary copyright holders to write a series of continuation James Bond novels, which proved to be so successful that instead of the contracted three books he went on to publish some fourteen titles, including Licence Renewed and Icebreaker.
Having lived in the Republic of Ireland, the United States and the UK, John Gardner sadly died in August of 2007 having just completed his third novel in the Moriarty trilogy, Conan Doyle’s eponymous villain of the Sherlock Holmes series.
