"Goldfinger has an effortless grace that is simply beyond most thrillers. Goldfinger is just a potboiler fantasy, but it is suffused with beautiful writing; elegant simple sentences that contain real wit and character. Fleming's brevity and clarity, his development of character, the pace and humour he injects, all shine out.Goldfinger is a great story. Goldfinger was written by a man who who above all wrote for the sheer enjoyment of it all."

"Auric Goldfinger is the richest man in England—though his wealth can’t be found in banks. He’s been hoarding vast stockpiles of his namesake metal, and it’s attracted the suspicion of 007’s superiors at MI6. Sent to investigate, Bond uncovers an ingenious gold-smuggling scheme, as well as Goldfinger’s most daring caper yet: Operation Grand Slam, a gold heist so audacious it could bring down the world economy."
