I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I complete see the scene that Broken Tune pointed out as very, very similar to one in They Came To Baghdad. It would be really hard to miss!
The chapters are short & snappy. I'm having a good time, despite Bond's attitude toward women.
