Carte Blanche Review:
Carte Blanche had the same effect on me as the 21st century Casino Royale. once again, I was able to experience the same adventure and intrigue, the same thrills, that I once did when I first read about British Secret Agent James Bond, 007. In fact, Carte Blanche is so good, I actually took my time reading it, so as to make the concoction last just a little longer. James Bond is a unique figure in literature, and a spy tale such as Carte Blanche does not come along often enough.
