  • An everyman Bond

    by on

    Francis Durbridge's other (non-Paul Temple) creation, Tim Frazer, makes his sterling debut in an easy yet gripping read that doesn't show its age much.

    Tim just wants his money back from a friend and dubious one-time business partner who has gone into hiding, but finds himself thrust into the world of espionage. He's no fool as a character and the author allows us to get into his thought processes and reasoning.

    A contemporary of James Bond and its easy to see why a series was born from this tale.
