In Secret Service

Getting caught up on my reading. There are always Bond books being sent my way and this one I found for myself, following a recommendation by top Bond book collector Steve Kulakoski.

Mitch Silver’s first novel, In Secret Service, revolves around a “lost Ian Fleming manuscript” called Provenance. The entire text of Provenance is woven into the narrative including photos, documents and “historical” letters!

Have Ian Fleming rob the Queen Mother and gigolo on the orders of Winston Churchill and you start to get an idea of the fun. Silver effectively weaves his threads and makes the madcap action interesting and plausible.

A great fictional Fleming read.
