THUNDERBALL - Ian Fleming
This in my opinion is the third best of the Bond's just behind Goldfinger and From Russia With Love. Two nuclear missiles are stolen by SPECTRE and Bond is tasked to locate them before a major US city is destroyed.
This is the book that introduces Blofeld as head of SPECTRE. The movie follows this book fairly faithfully and it is one of my favourites in the movie franchise.
Again the Bond books never going to win a Man Booker but that's because they are readable. Great escapism and uttering un-politically correct.
