A close cousin of the adventure story is the western This concept comes across strong in this last Bond novel completed during Fleming s lifetime It was published eight months after his death in 1965Ian Fleming was a long time heavy drinker and smoker and these two poisons combined and contributed to his early demise The creator of James Bond and the author of thirteen Bond books Fleming died at age 56 in 1964 His last recorded words were an apology to the ambulance drivers for having inconvenienced them saying I am sorry to trouble you chaps I don t know how you get along so fast with the traffic on the roads these days In The Man with the Golden Gun Bond is sent to confront a celebrated gun man and killer in Central and South America Change the facts in this story just a little and this could have been set in 1870 and in the American west Bond s CIA friend Felix Leiter laments that romantics killed a criminal and then made him a hero Historians can note the legends of Billy the Kid and Jesse James Fleming s 1950 60s gunman is Francisco Scaramanga as scary a villain as any he s written in the pastTold with Fleming s inimitable wit and charm and with an adventurer s style this is maybe not one of the better Bond stories but still very good in it s own right

Son drug smuggling and industrial sabotage Worst of all for Bond Scaramanga has a golden bullet inscribed with the numbers 007 and he’s eager to put it to useUnder the heat of the Caribbean sun Bond faces a seemingly impossible task win a duel against the Man with the Golden Gun. The past could be forgiven but not forgotten except with the passage of time Ian Fleming The Man with the Golden GunI can t really call this an unfinished novel It was finished just not by Ian Fleming He wrote the first draft and died So this obviously is the last James Bond novel I m not enough of a Ian Fleming fan to recognize howwhereif the lack of Ian Fleming made a huge difference to the drafting I think the end of the novel with Jones refusing certain honors may not have found their way into the final novel if Ian Fleming were in control through the whole process It seemed too final too sentimental This novel returns Bond to active duty after losing his memory in the last novel It also sends Bond back to Jamaica It was good Bond just not great bond Seemed like a comfortable Ian Fleming wrting from a confident spot The shootout was a bit of a disappointment but Scaramanga s last few moments were spectacular

    Ian Fleming’s James Bond series has been up to now written with a Clint Eastwood terseness of expression interspersed often with existential emo angst Although the thirteenth novel 'The Man with the Golden Gun' published under Fleming’s name is posthumous it is based on a draft manuscript found after Fleming's death Honestly
