Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
Surround yourself with human beings, my dear James. They are easier to fight for than principles.
In Casino Royale, the first of Fleming's 007 adventures, a game of cards is James Bond's only chance to bring down the desperate SMERSH agent Le Chiffre.
But Bond soon discovers that there is far more at stake than money.
'A superb gambling scene, a torture scene which still haunts me, a beautiful girl' - Raymond Chandler
'Mr Fleming's first novel is an extremely engaging affair...the especial charm of the book is the high poetry with which he invests the green blaize lagoons of the casino tables...Mr Fleming has produced a book that is both exciting and extremely civilized' - Times Literary Supplement
