Bond here, Bond there, Bond surfaces everywhere. Agent 007 is up against the East German HVA and the KGB's elite offshoot of Bond's old enemy SMERSH. Female plants attempting to lure communist agents to the West are being killed and their tongues removed. Bond must get to his plants before the unknown assailant gets to them. From Bornholm to Mayfair and on to Hong Kong, Bond has only his secret weapons and his charm to rely on as he fights for M and country; 240 pages.
