There's a line somewhere between the hardboiled and sadism (with a good helping of fetishism thrown in) and more often than not I think Bond crosses it. It's been a while since I read the books (except for the golf scene in GOLDFINGER, which I reread recently), but I remember Bond as having a cold, sneering sort of toughness.
