Three James Bond novellas come alive in Robert Whitfield’s expert hands. The best, THE LIVING DAYLIGHTS, follows Bond's thoughts and actions as he watches a beautiful cellist while waiting for a KGB sniper, events movie viewers will remember as the initial action in the movie of the same title. Also featured are PORTRAIT OF A LADY, about Bond's trip to Sotheby's in--literally--a bid to catch a Russian spy, and OCTOPUSSY, a story about a major's criminal activity, in which Bond plays only a small role. Robert Whitfield gives Bond a smooth, urbane voice, managing not to reflect any of the actors who've played the British spy on screen. He also nimbly handles the major's inner dialogue in OCTOPUSSY.
