If You Like James Bond Books, You’ll Love…

Ian Fleming Synopsis: Britain’s new ICBM-based national defense system Moonraker is almost ready, but things don’t quite sit just right. M gets James Bond to check out Sir Hugo Drax (card shark and head of the Moonraker project) and Bond discovers that the Moonraker project as well as Drax are not exactly what they appear. The 1955 novel Moonraker was adapted to film in 1979, starring Roger Moore as James Bond. It was also the second appearance of 7-footer Richard Kiel (of Eegah fame, naturally) as Jaws.

    He wrote other books, at least one on backdrop sketches called ‘Thrilling Cities’. Some were unflattering..
