Bond is back. With a vengeance.
M has summoned agent 007. It's the swinging Sixties and a flood of narcotics is pouring into Britain. Sinister industrialist Dr Julius Gorner is identified as the source and James Bond is dispatched to investigate.
The trail takes Bond to Paris and then Persia - where the beautiful and enigmatic twins Scarlett and Poppy lead him to Gorner's secret desert headquarters, and Bond uncovers his cold-blooded plans for world domination.
Only by playing Gorner's twisted game can Bond stop him . . .
