James Bond's phone number is the only one found on the body of a young girl floating in the Thames. Something else strange is a credit card issued by an agency no one has ever heard of. Special Branch calls on M; M, in turn, rings Agent 007 to get to the bottom of the connection between a quasi-religious sect called the Society of the Meek Ones and Vladimir Scorpius, arms dealer to terrorist worldwide whose base of operations is an island off of South Carolina. Society girl Hon. Trilby Shrivenham and beautiful American IRS agent Harriet Horner enter the picture to spice things up as Bond goes up against uber-villain Scorpius.
