Simon rocks as always, Gardner’s worse Bond book

This is Gardner’s weakest work. Decent ear filler, but this and Scorpious are his weaker works. As I’m working my way through the Bond books I couldn’t skip it (didn’t know to, anyways)so I would tell you NOT to skip it if you just want to listen to them all. If you are a pick and chooser... well then skip it.

This is by far the best James Bond book that I have heard so far what a wonderful story action packed and should definitely be made into a movie two thumbs up. He must listen

Tipping the Scales

A great Bond romp, with Bond teaming up with agents from other agencies to tackle the Scales of Justice. Good story, superb narration.
