“One of the most accomplished of thriller-writers... Moonraker is as mercilessly readable as all the rest”
“Moonraker scores with brilliant exploitation of M at the dinner at Blades, and the splendid bridge trap set by Bond to catch the infamous crypto-Nazi, Sir Hugo Drax. Drax is by far the best characterised of all Bond's villains”
