Hello. I will review this article. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 20:43, 15 December 2013 (UTC)

  • In the lead, link hardback and ebook
  • Why is citation 1 needed in the lead?
  • "Boyd modelled his version" This far in the article, you haven't mentioned William Boyd yet, so you should be including his first name there.
  • The Boyd image caption doesn't need a period
  • "although that was 48% down on Jeffery Deaver's" You've already given Deaver's full name; the "Jeffery" can be omitted
  • "before being collected by seven Jensen Interceptors before being" avoid repetition of "before being"
  • slight re-phrasing removed both. - SchroCat (talk) 08:23, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
  • In the lead, you say "ebook", in the Release and reception section you say "e-book". Be consistent
  • ""far superior to the last effort to breathe life into a Bond novel by Jeffrey Deaver"" Shouldn't this be Jeffery Deaver?

On hold now. Taylor Trescott - my talk + my edits 00:07, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
