EIDOLON, Chapter 4-MI6 is under attack from both hidden forces and Her Majesty's Government itself. Why do MI5 and Whitehall want MI6 to be unable to defend itself? Where is the terrifying Beckett Hawkwood? What is EIDOLON?
Though I'm still not fully on board with Ellis' version of Bond or his style of storytelling here, there's certainly been more to like with the Eidolon arc than the opening arc. This one shakes things up with some things that have been seeded since the beginning and it's welcome to see that come into play.
