From Booklist

Ian Fleming would like to put his World War II espionage career and his grisly postwar assassination duties behind him. Not possible, thanks to a plea for help from Prescott Quick, another of "Churchill's boys." Fleming is loathe to get involved, but since it appears someone may be in a position to expose the existence of Churchill's secret cadre of postwar assassins, he flies to New Orleans, where Quick has established himself as a streetwise private investigator. Fleming and Quick settle into a Holmes and Watson relationship as more murders surface that may be connected to the bad old days. New Orleans in the late forties is a murky mixture of racism, voodoo, police corruption, and sexual profligacy. Fawcett, who also writes the Mycroft Holmes series, weaves an arresting fictional persona out of the raw material provided by the life of the James Bond creator. This series improves with each entry, in no small part thanks to the author's uncanny ability to create a vivid sense of time and place. Wes Lukowsky

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Keith Nichols on August 2, 2004
Format: Hardcover
The author effectively apes the florid style of Ian Fleming's James Bond series. The characters are colorful enough for a Fleming novel, the plot is sufficiently engaging, and the settings surrounding the action are well evoked. If you yearn for a new, good old James Bond style adventure, this will do the job.
