Flashback: ROLE OF HONOR, 1984

Just for fun, here's an advert from 1984 for John Gardner's fourth James Bond novel, Role of Honor. I believe this appeared in Publisher's Weekly. At the time it was thought Gardner was going to take a year break after his third Bond novel, Icebreaker, so the announcement of a new Bond book for 1984 was a great surprise!


Role of Honor will be released on July 7 as part of the Orion's special re-issuing of the classic John Gardner James Bond titles to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of License Renewed.

  1. I love this book. Gardner's second best IMHO.

  3. I don't know if it's just me but I've always thought the picture of Bond on the cover of Role of Honor looks a lot like Pierce Brosnan.
