It's 1969, and, having just celebrated his forty-fifth birthday, James Bond, British special agent 007, is summoned to headquarters to receive an unusual assignment. Zanzarim, a troubled West African nation, is being ravaged by a bitter civil war, and M directs Bond to quash the rebels threatening the established regime. Bond's arrival in Africa marks the start of a feverish mission to discover the forces behind this brutal war, and he soon realizes the situation is far from straightforward. Piece by piece, Bond uncovers the real cause of the violence in Zanzarim, revealing a twisting conspiracy that extends further than he ever imagined.

James Bond is sent to intervene in a civil war in western Africa.
William Boyd does a good job stepping into Ian Fleming's shoes.

BORING!!! This is not a James Bond book. It's not even a good spy or mystery book. The Ian Fleming Society really got this one wrong. Eating scrambled eggs and having or wanting sex with every woman you see does not make a character into James Bond. Please bring back Raymond Benson.

Mostly boring. As I was getting more and more into the story, I was beginning to favour the 'villains' rather than the protagonist.
