Goodreads Rating: 3.81
Publisher: Penguin Books
‘Mr Bond, they have a saying in Chicago: “Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time it’s enemy action.” Miami, Sandwich and now Geneva. I propose to wring the truth out of you.’ Goldfinger’s eyes slid slowly past Bond’s head.
‘Oddjob. The Pressure Room.’
Auric Goldfinger: cruel, clever, frustratingly careful. A cheat at canasta and a crook on a massive scale in everyday life. The sort of man James Bond hates. So it’s fortunate that Bond is the man charged by both the Bank of England and MI5 to discover what Goldfinger, the richest man in the country, intends to do with his ill-gotten gains — and what his connection is with SMERSH, the feared Soviet spy-killing corps. But once inside this deadly criminal’s organization, 007 finds that Goldfinger’s schemes are more grandiose — and lethal — than anyone could have imagined. Not only is he planning the greatest gold robbery in history, but mass murder as well …
