This is the Bond for the 80's created by Ian Fleming predecessor, John Gardner. SPECTRE is up to its old tricks, but Agent 007 and his female friend Cedar have a few up their sleeves, and they'll need them when a mysterious art collector named Markus Bismaquer appears to be collecting more than prints. 007 is double-crossed by an unusual adversary---a one-breasted woman named Nena who Bond finds out, too late, is the daughter of the late Blofeld.
