John Edmund Gardner (b. November 20, 1926, Seaton Delaval, Northumberland, England – d. August 3, 2007, Basingstoke, Hampshire). "Special Branch are not usually interested in dead bodies found floating in the Thames, except when the corpse is a young girl with an impeccable background when they become very interested indeed. So interested thatthey call on the legendary M, head of Secret Service. In turn M sends for Commander James Bond, for the body has yielded two things of interest. First, the only telephone number in her diary is that of Bond; second, she is carrying a credit card which has never been heard of before on either side of the Atlantic. Soon, Bond finds himself caught up in an unusual mixture ofintrigue and mayhem involving a strange, but deadly, quasi-religious sect known as the Society of the Meek Ones; their leader the soft-spoken Father Valentine, who has links with the shadowy Vladimir Scorpius, nicknamed ‘TheKing of Terror’ because he is the largest arms dealer to various terrorist factions worldwide. Naturally, with evil comes the good – the society girl , the Hon. Trilby Shrivenham, and an American IRS undercover agent, the gorgeous Harriet Horner. Good girls? Only time will tell. Intrigue builds on intrigue and, as ever, Bond soon finds himself in the middle of a deadly game of terrorism and arms supplies. A game in which he is pitted against one of the most ruthless and sinister villains that Bond has ever encountered. After six best-selling Bond books John Gardner’s seventh is set to outsell tham all." (from the dj). Contents : 1. The Longest Mile. 2. The Floater. 3. The Crossroads Incident. 4. Avante Carte. 5.
