GARDNER, John. Licence Renewed. (London) : Jonathan Cape and Hodder & Stoughton, (1981). First Printing. Pp (10),[11]-270. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. The first in the Gardner series. John Edmund Gardner (b. November 20, 1926, Seaton Delaval, Northumberland, England – d. August 3, 2007, Basingstoke, Hampshire). "Bond is back and he's better than ever. Miss Moneypenny thinks so. And it's only a matter of time before Lavender Peacock, the beautiful ward of the Laird of Murcaldy, will heartily agree. Bond isdrinking noticeably less these days; he's perhaps more diligent about exer cise and has a special low-tar tobacco blended for his cigarette... more »sat Morelands of Grosvenor Street. But the 1980s have reached the departmen t as well. Political restraints are squeezing in on the service. The elite Double-O status, for example, conveying its authority to kill, is being abolished. But M takes little notice of these restrictions when it comes to Bond. In M's words,"There are moments when the country needs a troubleshooter-- a blunt instrument -- and by heaven it's going to have one." One of the se moments has indisputably arrived. There is something very ominous about the meeting between the international terrorist known as Franco and the renowned nuclear physicist, the Laird of Murcaldy. Someone must infiltrate theLaird's castle, and only Bond could so deftly extract an invitation on Gol d Cup Day at Ascot. Then with Ruger Super Blackhawk .44 Magnum in its secret compartment and an impressive selection of Q's latest gadgetry ingeniously dispersed throughout his luggage, Bond points the Saab 900 Turbo toward the northwest highland and the fun begins." (from the dj). "John Gardner hasbeen writing thrillers since the early 1960s. [...] He was commissioned by Glidrose Publications Ltd, who own the James Bond copyright, to contribute a further episode about that immortal among Secret Service agents.". Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 30.00
