Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bond, a shattered man after the death of his wife at the hands of Ernst Stavro Blofeld, has gone to pieces as an agent, endangering himself and his fellow operatives. M, unwilling to accept the loss of one of his best men, sends 007 to Japan for one last, near-impossible mission. But Japan proves to be Bond's downfall, leading him to a mysterious residence known as the "Castle of Death" where he encounters an old enemy revitalized. All the omens suggest that this is the end for the British agent and, for once, even Bond himself seems unable to disagree...

Review:

"Bond on paper is vastly different than on film: there is a lot less dependence on the cool gadgets and technology, and his character is more vulnerable. The books, however, still offer plenty of action and are genuine page-turners." Library Journal

About the Author

Ian Fleming (1908-1964), creator of the world's best-known secret agent, is the author of fourteen James Bond books. Born in London in 1908 and educated at Eton and Sandhurst, he became the Reuters Moscow correspondent in 1929. In the spring of 1939, Fleming went back to Moscow as a special correspondent for the London Times. In June of that same year, he joined Naval Intelligence and served throughout World War II, finally earning the rank of Commander, RNVSR (Sp.). Much of the James Bond material was drawn directly from Fleming's experiences as an intelligence officer. Later, Fleming became a consultant on foreign affairs for the London Sunday Times, by which time he had become far better known as the creator of James Bond.

Bond, devastated & grieving over the loss of his bride is assigned to a seemingly hopeless case in Japan under the orders of the forbidding head of the Japanese secret service, Tiger Tanaka. Mr. Tanaka assigns Bond to exercise his license to kill a sick & twisted foreigner who has taken up residence in Japan.
Bond's mission becomes personal as he confronts his darker side -- his need for revenge. Kissy Suzuki is there in all of her beauty & innocence to pick up the pieces of his once again shattered life.
